Whoa! If you’re an aspiring author and someone tells you this process is easy and to dive right in, run. It’s a lie. No one should ever just pick up a pen, (or open Word) and just dive in.

As my publication date grows near, I’m finding myself struggling a little bit on the emotional level. I see so many people whipping books out like it’s nothing, throwing them up on Amazon within a few weeks of each other, and it leaves me feeling useless.
