What I earned and learned from publishing my first novel

I started writing This Time, my debut urban fantasy novel, in March 2017. By the time my book was published I had already spent over $1,100.

In October 2018, I realized my dream of becoming a published author!

My definition of success is to publish three fantasy novels and to make a profit from my novels within a three-year period. This means I have until 2021 to decide if my new career is successful and to simply enjoy the journey until then.

For October 2018 (my book launch month), I earned $95.20 (Amazon) + $17.57 (Draft2Digital) = $112.77. I sold 66 books and had 6 reviews.
