I just took my tax information to my accountant.
Reality...I'm a self-publishing author.
That means all expenses for putting out my books falls to me...
cover design and photo costs
All of that costs money.
This year my royalties for ALL of my 14 books were $14,379
My costs were $14,855.
That means I worked...
With VERY FEW days off.
In fact, it cost my family money for me to release the five books that I released last year.
That's my reality.
And it's one that makes me wonder why I should write today.
