Yes, I am a self-published author.

That means a lot of things these days to lots of different people. But let me tell you what it means to me:

Being self-published means I am in complete control of my artwork. And I like that. It means I don’t have to report to anyone or give up part of my rights to my world. 

Being self-published means I have to work really hard if I want to be successful. I poured in countless hours of publishing my works, aside from the days and weeks and months I spent writing. I am in charge of my own marketing and publicity. It’s exhausting and tedious, but infinitely rewarding and satisfying.

Being self-published, more than anything else, means I am relying fully upon my readers–all of you!–to give me feedback and to help me improve. Reviews, ratings, and sharing my books that you love with others will make a HUGE difference to me. And it means a lot when you take the time and money to support me. So thank you! You’re the reason I’m publishing and I want to hear everything you have to say. And I hope it never stops.
