Itâ€™s been a little over two weeks since â€œThe First Sacrificeâ€ went live, and in that time Iâ€™ve been promoting it through friends, family and social media. And Iâ€™ve been tremendously encouraged by the response so far. I already have my first Amazon review, which gave me four stars out of five. To my delight, people like the cover (I am very happy with how I went about putting it togetherâ€“ stock photo websites offer some truly great content available at very reasonable prices). And, most importantly, Iâ€™m selling a steady trickle of copies, including two in the last couple of days! Itâ€™s not a lot of money, but itâ€™s better than nothing.
Rome wasnâ€™t built in a day, of course; writing and releasing a novel will require plenty of hard work, far more than it took for â€œThe First Sacrificeâ€. But now Iâ€™ve experienced the freedom and the fulfilment of self-publishing… and best of all, the thrill of having a work out in the open.
I look forward to where this road will take me.
