An Indi publisher helped with my first book in 2012. The experience was exciting and educational. Since then, I've learned a lot about publishing and marketing. My next book is coming to completion and I'm thinking about going 2 routes; either Indi and traditional or self-publish and traditional. The book will compliment my speaking gigs so I'd like to get it out sooner than later.
The challenges I face are getting more comfortable with social media and developing a self-marketing mindset, Both are actually empowering -it's just a continuous process. I've thought about hiring a little help with the social media.
The 2 groups I've joined are Writers Workshop and Christian Writers. I'm always interested in learning more creative writing skills -and as a Christian, I'm always thirsty to commune with like-minded people. It's where I draw my strength.
My interest is in leadership development. I would enjoy creative writing courses to help further my writing technique. Also, any training on how to use social media more effectively and efficiently.
