My uneventful journey to being a self published author

I was 10 when I wrote my first book. I'd read everything in the school library. However, I kept thinking "why didn't they do this instead"? Eventually, I decided, I am going to write my own book. Which I did. I still have the tattered old book. My classmates read my books, constantly pestering me for chapters. It was the validation I needed.

As I grew older, I thought "Why not send my book to a publisher?" Oh, the rejection! I was dejected, felt unworthy, and suffered from imposter syndrome. How dare I think I'm worthy?

I continued to write, but more for me than anyone. I must say, it led to my enviable penmanship. Eventually, I decided this year to finally self publish my book. Not for validation, but more for the "I did it " part. For that 10 year old girl who imagined herself an author.

On Friday 06 August 2021, I released the first book in my trilogy- The Kenryk Series: The Avaris on Amazon. It is a dream come true for me. I never imagined I would be holding in my hand a properly formatted and bound paperback. Yet, here I am, about to sail the wild seas of finding a niche among many fantasy fiction writers.

I hope it inspires someone to think "Why didn't she write it this way" and start writing their own stories. You can find my published book in the following link

Not just on Amazon

Excuse me, may I have some inspiration?
