So Your An Author Now?: The Journey to Having 15 Books on Amazon


Before I became a Stay at Home Mom, I was an instructional designer at Penn State.  The job was pretty much my dream job.  I did not like the 40 minute commute each way but I loved what I did, who I did it with, and the people that I worked for.

While at home I decided to blog and self-publish books on amazon as a way to connect with the world while I was home alone.  I was able to use what I have learned during my many degrees (Accounting, Business Admin, Teaching and Learning, and Educational Technology).  I have to admit, I don’t enjoy writing and I really don’t enjoy editing.  But I enjoy the way it makes me feel when I am finished.  Like I accomplished something. I even made a blog and bought the domain for the 50 Things to Know Books

I think blogging and self-book publishing is like real life lemonade stand.  You try and put a product out there that you are passionate about and you think others want.  You tweak the product and get the world out.  Then hopefully reap the rewards, even if they are just mental.  I even got a fun tv appearance out of the whole thing.

Peter 1: 4:10- God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. I know I am using these gifts as a Mom.  But I hope I am using my gift of knowledge in ways to help others.  I think I am doing this through my writing, blogging, self-publishing, and trying to help others do the same thing.
