For the past month or so my sister, Carri and I have been busy working behind the scenes. We decided that not only are we going to self publish but we’re going to start up our own business. For now, we’ll only be publishing our own works. In the future I would like to take on other authors and give them a chance like someone had given us.
There have been several dinners and days running errands where we discuss what we needs to happen and how we need to go about it. My daughter jumped on board by finally declaring a major. She now plans to become an editor and a literary agent. Supplies for a home office are slowly being purchased, things we already had are being rearranged and set up at my house in the unused dining room which has now become our office. I do love the antique furniture that I have in there and the cozy feeling I now get in what was a big empty space. I can see many nights spent there working on manuscripts.
Vacation time has been requested so that we can start setting up readings, signings, and vendor dates. It has been a lot of work but it is something that I believe we will do well at. We have a vision of where we want our books to go and now we have a plan as to how to get there.
Our launch is coming soon. We still need to finalize a few things but we’re getting so excited about it. Even my youngest has decided that he is going to be “a writer just like you, Momma.” Here recently while I’ve been writing, he is next to me working on his own project.
For as long as I can remember my sister and I have talked about starting a business together. Now, we’re finally putting it into action. Have you ever had a dream that you thought was unreachable?
