Insecure Writer's Support Group:

Insecure Writer's Support Group is a blog hop hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh where totally insecure writers can get together and share the things that are making us go argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First off, Happy New Year!!

I’m so glad that I’m kicking the new blogging year off with an IWSG post. This is the year that I’ve decided I am going to publish my first book. No more excuses.

The only thing standing in my way is that I’m very much daunted by the self-publishing process. I am by no means tech savvy. It took me months to get my blog up to speed (it’s still not exactly whiz-bang but it’s functional!) I don’t know how I’m going to cope with all the technical aspects. Not to mention all the other bits and pieces that go along with it. I’m going to need to figure out how much to price my books, do my own self-promotion, beg people for reviews, console myself when I get bad reviews and worst of all figure out how the Australian and US tax treaty works.

There you have it folks, my insecurity for this month and possibly for the next couple of months at least. Despite this, I’m hopeful for the coming year and excited about the possibilities. Looking forward to sharing everybody’s first insecurities of the year!
