There is nothing wrong with having dreams of becoming a published author. However, publishing done right is very expensive which is why saving and investing should be apart of that dream as well. Those who have done it created a budget first and educated themselves by booking consultations and attending workshops and seminars because they knew how costly it is to secure their dreams. Those who budgeted first and planned first had a better publishing experience because they were proactive.
PSA: NO ONE IS GOING TO PUBLISH YOUR BOOK CORRECTLY FOR FREE. NO MATTER HOW GOOD IT IS, NO MATTER WHICH PUBLISHING ROUTE YOU TAKE.
When you invest in yourself, that’s when others begin to invest in you. We all have talents and gifts, but if all it took was gifts and talents in order to be famous, rich and wealthy, we all will be rich, wealthy and famous.
What I enjoy most about ElevatedWaves Publishing is the fact that we help writers budget their project and provide assistance each step of the way and after for a minimum investment.
If you wish to write a book and your story is complete, don’t throw your book away when you find your publishing experience to be expensive. Set a budget and begin investing into your project. Delayed gratification is the goal, not instant.
