The process of publishing my first book has been a rather taxing one. I know in the end all of this will be worth it. But I’m not going to lie, if not for my love of writing, I would have given up by now. With a little help from a friend, I have stayed positive and focused. After some reworking and adding over 10K words, I am feeling more confident and satisfied in this story. I am doing this for me; to prove to myself that I am capable of doing anything I set my mind to, but at the end of the day I really want people to love it too.
