Publishing Burn Out for the Small Press Indie Publisher
I think we've done it. I've hit the burnout brick wall of lack of energy and motivation to finish out this year with yet another release.
How did I get to this point?
Re-branding, formatting and promotion of my backlist.
Yes, for all of them but my Middle Grade novels which I just decided to put off until I write one more book in the series.
Also, throw in a two new releases of my own, one new release I co-published with my son, and one release that was going to be published in November, that I finished but the collaborating authors needed to move back.
I am tired.
Also, the financial investment in this endeavor of updating my backlist was costly, but worth it.
SO, BECAUSE YOU ARE THE BOSS
As a small press or indie publisher, I get to decide when to push a project out. I am thinking I will do just that for my project and series.
I have no more gas and want to drum up some for Nanowrimo this November.
WHAT DO YOU DO TO COMBAT BURNOUT? HAVE YOU BEEN?
