"Insignia” is up!

I can honestly say that natural childbirth was easier than this project. 

It’s FREE on Kindle devices (yay, free) and it should be free on other devices through the end of Sunday. Otherwise, it’s 99 cents. I’d love it if you’d leave a review. : ) I’ll be announcing some promotional stuff next week so stay tuned!

One of the things I’m most proud of about “Insignia” - besides getting through the love scenes without pulling my hair out - is the diversity of characters. I hope you can appreciate that, too. 

OH! And I’ve got a shout-out to my Tumblr family in the acknowledgements. :) Seriously, thanks for all the love and support. 

OK, here are a few tips if you ever decide to self publish:

GO FOR IT. Don’t let anyone tell you it’s not a “real book” because you decided to self pub. And if you also want to pursue traditional publishing, give that a shot, too. Heck, try both. There are no hard and fast rules for making your dreams come true. Just put in the work.

FORMATTING IS HELL. If you’re formatting your work yourself, allow plenty of time for this. It takes some time to get the hang of it. 

EDITING IS HELL. If you’re editing your work yourself, allow plenty of time for this, too. Take at least a few days’ break from it, if you can. You will learn a lot from editing but your eyes will glaze over if you don’t walk away from it for a little while.

TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. Click here for specifics.
