I became an author without knowing what I was doing.
I did not know anything about editing, fonts or catchy covers. I had not thought about marketing at all and did not know what a libary review was. Full of courage and very little knowledge I threw myself into it and published my first book.
However, when I stood with the proof of it, it seemed to me that the courage to be an author was not enough. The world was not in line waiting to buy my book.
Every mistake I committed taught me a hundred new things, and I quickly realized that I had a lot of knowledge I could use on my authorship from my 9-5 work on communication and branding.
