So. Many. Mistakes.

I kind of wish I could go back in time and do my first book over again. But I can’t. So instead I wrote another book. And messed that one up a bit. And wrote a third book (that I haven’t managed to screw up yet, so good for me).

I’m going to do monthly “Everything you need to know about self-publishing!!!” videos.
Last time, I did a video on how I self-published my books (and you can too!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-u6LSgRxPk

If you have any other questions about self-publishing and/or have topic ideas, please leave your ideas in the comments section below!

    The biggest self-publishing mistake is not self-publishing!

    You have an opportunity to get your book idea out of your head and into the world. You can hit 'publish' from your bedroom and reach the world's biggest book stores.

    Do you have any idea how many people would've killed for this kind of opportunity in the past? Now we have it right in front of us! Ignoring it would be the biggest mistake of all.

    There's plenty of mistakes you can make along the way, but this video will save you from some of those. Just don't make the big one…if you have a book idea bursting to get out of your brain, self-publish it and bring it to life!

    Thanks for being an inspiration Grace. You might not be YouTubing any more but your vids are still helping people every day. 🙂

    If it brings in the money, it is a real book. Remember, writing a book makes you an author, and that is what makes people see you as an "author"ity.

    Great video! You have a beautiful business mind!

    I've visited self-published authors blogs and Facebook pages/Twitters/Instagrams, and too often too many of them they spend too much time posting memes, photos, and cutesy reposts/retweets and DON'T provide enough posts and links to their works. It's like, "Hey, I want to repost your novel on my Facebook page but I can't find a post with a link to your work!" Even worse, they'll post a pic of their book cover with absolutely no links anywhere to buy the work. Yeah, don't just keep posting "Buy my book!", but do it at least on a semi-frequent basis!

    Ty for posting this video! I’m not even sure you’ll see this comment, but just this bit of information is extremely helpful for me in the fact that I write poetry and it really comes from my darkness. I don’t want to just put it all out there and just see what it happens. I really feel like I can give someone closure or in my twisted way bring them remembrance of better days. Thanks again! I’m subscribed now!
