Today, on the podcast, I talk about the highs and lows of my self-publishing career in 2021.

Some of my lows included:

  • Dealing with my own career expectations and the reality,
  • What it means to not be using a pen name,
  • Feeling like I’m letting down some of my collaborators in royalty-share agreements…

Some of my highs included:

  • Having the French version of #TheLeftoverBride reach the #9 on Apple Books Chart 
  • Having the French version of #TheLeftoverBride sit next to The Hating Game by Sally Thorne on the charts…
  • Reading wonderful emails from readers around the globe

And more…

Do you have any questions about self-publishing/writing?
