So, today I mention some risky business. Publishing involves risk. Self-publishing is riskier since it all falls back on YOU
It's taking a chance on your passion, your desire, your talent.
It's taking a chance that some group of folks out in the wide, wide world will love your work, all while knowing some folks will scream to the hilltop how they HATE you and your writing too.
It's taking a chance that an idea - even if not new under the sun - has a unique enough twist to intrigue others to tell others and those others tell more people.
It's marketing until your fingers fall off with sales softer than a plush teddy bear while the Jack or Jill next door plops a novel out, sits back to crochet and rolls in the dough after their trendy story becomes all the rage (How did that happen? Heck if I know.)
It's taking a chance by moving your established characters from sweethearts that just met and have just learned to love each other to...something more. How detailed should I go before I accidentally turn my paranormal, action and romance novel into an NA erotica???
It's a risky business. But somebody's got to do it.
What are your thoughts when it comes to taking big risks in life?
