When taking a job, there is always parts of the job that you can’t anticipate. As an independent writer, the work is never done. There is the writing, the numerous drafts to craft the story, the nail-biting when you wait for your editor’s comments, finding the right cover, working with the formatter, uploading the b book to the right places, then finally the publicity.
That is never-ending. Press releases, book fairs, local fairs, contests, creating programs for local libraries, and so on.
Then there is moving onto the next project. For me the next one is almost done and have started on the second next project. Both of which are departures from my Edie Swift books.
