Episode 36

Today, I share with you what I’ve done each day to increase my royalties: one step at a time.

Between updating #TheLeftoverBride epilogue, starting to format another bilingual book, putting one of my books as perma-free and running a free promo on another book who is currently in KDP select, I am making progress. 

Another topic I’m talking about today is dealing with feeling inadequate or not “as successful” as an indie author because those are feelings many of us have at one time or another.

And a reminder that success isn’t a pie and that learning from other indie authors as well as remembering what our goals are is oh so important.
