I’ve convinced all the book creditors to accept tiny shares of yesterday’s $8 income, so I’m now officially at zero! I’m still finalizing the book, but now that I’m operating in the red (or the black — I always get those mixed up), the book should be out any day now, and I’ll finally be in front of the 8-ball! (Or behind the 8-ball — can’t keep those straight either).
Poorness update: self-publishing a book costs 100%. Of whatever you have. 100%.
Thanks for the loving support as I struggle to self-publish my book. And thanks even more to an unknown angel who helped get me through a rough patch by buying my copy of Milton Berle’s Personal Joke File for $8 (two dollars less than I was asking, but everything helps at a time like this!) #2ndMoneyAsAuthor!
SELF-PUBLISHING — any advice? Gotta do it on the cheap, having spent 95% of my budget on now-fired profreader, two lawyers, seven-year-old story consultant, and hardback copy of “Milton Berle’s Personal Joke File.” (Note: could sell Joke File for about $10, if that would make a difference).
In my post about firing my proofrader, I made reference to my quality bs. Of course, I meant ms. For “manuscript.” I don’t know how these things slip through.
