Authors Tell All- Lisa Warir

me without glassesI am a new published author. I’ve been writing for fifteen plus years, mostly fan fiction online and had a small following with my Michael Jackson stories (though I’ve written about other musical celebs as well) I published my first novella Destinee romance novella this year in January and have learned a lot along the way.
It takes a lot of courage to share your work with people, it’s a little easier online because people don’t know you, but once I published a paperback version of my book I started sharing it with family, friends, coworkers etc and gained a lot of feedback and encouragement to do more. Even though I have been writing for years, I can’t say it was a dream of mine per se, just something to wile away the time and daydream. (when I was younger I was more of an artist than a writer)  I was also an avid reader, there was a time in my life when I used to read like 2 novels a week, but you’re looking at a time before the internet as we know it today and cable TV.
What I have learned aside from the challenges of self publishing-formatting, relying on someone else to do your cover art, the costs, ways to promote and market etc
new book markkI’ve learned how to do book trailers (basic, not fancy)
I did my first Youtube video this year (book related)
I plan to do a book signing, when and where remains to be seen
It’s been a journey. I’ve had ups and downs, aggravations etc but I press on because I feel that this is my time.
