I took the plunge! First story submitted to KDP for publishing

I've finally taken the plunge! A few moments ago, I hit the submit button, sending my first short story to KDP for publication. It will be in the review stage up to 72 hours from what I understand and hopefully will sail through! Of course, I just had to commit a "newbie" mistake, haha. Forgot to mention that it was a 6k short story in the description so when it's published (optimism!), I'll be making my first book detail change relatively quickly. 🙂

Entering the world of self-publishing!

I've been wanting to take the next step with my writing and finally decided how I want to do that. This weekend, hopefully, I'll take my first foray into the world of self-publishing by putting my first story on Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). It'll be a 6k short story - baby steps for now - but it will be a big move in a new direction for me! I'll still explore publishing through the more traditional route also (though one can argue that self-publishing is the new "traditional" I suppose) as I believe in exploring multiple avenues. Stay tuned for more details!
