That said, speak your peace but refrain from trying to argue with Trump supporters because doing so could damage your mental health. They, like Trump, are beyond illogical – they’re downright irrational. There’s just no arguing with that. Warmest wishes from a reader in California.

Your logic and thoughts are so very true and convicting.

I knew spending money on editing and covers and then spending time to properly format was key. I have no regrets.

You are also correct that any new business takes time and, though I know it, I am glad to be reminded. Thank you for reading.

Thank you for being so honest. It’s totally normal for businesses to be in the red for two or three years before really turning a profit, so really, you’re right on track.

The thing you’ve really done, wholly at the benefit of yourself, is had quality branding early on. I’ve helped many authors with re-branding the interiors of their entire series, and though it’s always been a major success and they’ve all been delighted at their new interiors, I know going through 4 to 10 books is hard on them financially and can be taxing on patience/energy. Debuting professionally, with solid covers, good blurbs, and great interiors is the best way to make a real impression on other professionals in the publishing field.

It looks like you’ve started on the exact right foot. Good for you for not losing your mind over this!

I too am nowhere near breaking even on my books, but I’m slowly building a backlist and each new release brings in new readers so I’m hopeful. Your covers are absolutely breathtaking and your reviews are fabulous so you’ve had a fantastic start. Good luck!

They are not Christian inspirational. I love my covers. I wanted the covers to reflect the fantasy aspect of it and blurbs emphasize the romance aspects of the series.

I know rebranding has worked for a lot of people, but I am very happy at the moment with what I have. Thanks for the kind words.
