Uncategorized Publishing… January 3, 2010 When you read the word: Publishing What does it mean to you? For me: Comfort, Achievement, Happiness, Joy. When you read the word: Marketing. What does it mean to you? For me: Challenge, Creativity, and Fun So why these words? What words would you think of?

The realities are far different than the dreams and hopes before being published. There is a huge sense of pride in seeing my book in a store. It's also cool – when meeting new people – to mention the book. People are always interested and often seem (kind of) impressed. As for marketing… well, it means hard work and it means a lot of online efforts. Most of the time it's kind of fun or interesting, but it is never really 'done'. A new opportunity may come out of nowhere or a new idea will come to you in your sleep. So I guess, to me, marketing is anything but finite.
