#WeeklySmile-Self Publishing


This past week has been a blur.  I’ve decided to publish a book of poetry!  Along that line, I sent out a request for Beta Readers.  That effort didn’t pan out as well as expected, but I did receive some good feedback that I can use.

This effort is a real learning experience.  I have NO idea what I’m doing.  But that’s never stopped me before!!  🙂  heehee!!

I’m going the route of self-publishing through Amazon.  So I’ve been researching as much as I can.  I’ve gone through my stack of poetry again and again, eliminating some pieces and adding others.

I am now at the point in the project where I’m proofing and formatting each piece.  It’s tedious.  After you look at your own work for so long, you go blind.  What I mean by that is that the piece loses its depth.  You have to really concentrate and stay focused.

I’m excited about this project and am happy about the progress I’ve made.  I’m especially looking forward to the long weekend so that I can concentrate on it.

I’ve decided on a title for the book, but don’t have the artwork for the cover yet.

Once I am further along in this process, I may post another request for Beta Readers, with a more finished possibility of the book.  If you’re interested in being one of those Beta Readers, use my contact page and send me an email.  I’ll be in touch!

All in all, I’m a very happy girl these days.  I’m still loving my new digs, although I am having some plumbing issues.  But that’s for a different post.

I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Thank you for joining me on this journey!  Penny ❤
