I wouldn’t say I’d mind if my books did “take off” in the future. I may even pitch my books to agents when time allows. What I have been feeling is that I want to let go of any expectation that my books will make me money one day. Of course, I’ll still talk about them on Twitter sometimes and my blog has a book page where people can check out my stories if they want to.
I sort of like the idea of being more obscure as an author. When someone does read and enjoy your book, it’s special. Yes, I did put a lot of time and work into my stories, and they didn’t provide me with an extra income so far, but that’s okay. I went for it and gave it my all. Now I can focus more on blogging, photography, health and fitness, and self-care. If my books somehow get more exposure in the future, that’s great. If not, that will be great, too. Because as cool as it is to be an author, I have a lot more to offer the world than writing. That’s just one piece of the puzzle. ❤
Thanks for stopping by today! Are you okay with being an obscure author, or would you rather put more work into getting your books noticed?
