Its never going to perfect –
…at least not in the eyes of the writer. But to the public, how will they know what a talent you are if you don’t put it out there.
I am a test subject of this. I have always told everyone I was a writer, had no inventory except a website and some content I put out for other people. But I encouraged others to write, I told them how to make it, how to market their books for free, how to get their names out in the right circles.
Yet! Where was the proof? What did I have to show them that it was possible? A good book will sell, and at the same time every good book doesn’t make the best sellers list immediately. You have to trust the process and at least get your work out.
I can only say that, because this week I finally did it. I put out a novella, its not really long enough to be considered a novel. The reviews I have been getting back have been amazing and encouraging, because now people know that the talent I claimed was real. The glimpse in small pieces led to something way more.
So what’s stopping you?
I know my own mind had me second guessing myself. It had me thinking it wasn’t good enough, I had to get it perfect. School made me put it out. It was a graduation requirement and I am grateful for it. Now I am ready to get back to writing and get more out. This time I am going to try pre-marketing and see how it goes. I want us to be able to give our writers the best information, so that when they sign with us they know they have options.
Put a sticky note on your computer! You can do this and you will feel so much better once you do! It was like I was on cloud nine for a few days. I was motivational, I was proud, aware and realized that I could call myself a PUBLISHED AUTHOR! I am a published author yal!!! The feeling like you finally finished and showed part of what you do all day is important and uplifting even if only to yourself. Of course it helped because it motivated a few of my other author friends.

I love finding new writers, and discovering new books, and we plan on putting those books out to you. SO just know that this indie publishing company is a publishing company for writers, by a writer!
Starting this month in July I will do a book recommendation of the month. That will give you all an eye of what we here at Love Tichelle Publishing are reading!
