Sigh.

Ran into the first road block today. I am not going to be able to self-publish this month unless things change. But, I'm still going to work the plan I have in place. Just...move "self-publish Tarot for Healing and Fibro for Life" to Feb. Or March. Or whenever we can afford the investment.

I am incredibly frustrated by this, but I knew there would be bumps in the road. I didn't know they'd happen this soon, but...such is life.

I updated my Patreon page and I'm feeling really good about it. I am basically posting every day, trying to show people that there is going to be content and they should totally pay me for it! It's a reasonable cost for what I'm providing, IMO, and I have posts planned out for pretty much every day. Tomorrow, I'm going to talk about my affirmation cards and the one I got for this year and this month, and then Friday will be me talking about the next Tarot book I'm planning on writing. Saturday and Sunday are open at the moment, but I'm half-planning talking about my house and critters. I don't want my Patreon to be all-business all-the-time.

The hard part about it is trying to reach new people. I *know* there are people out there who would like what I'm doing. But how do I get my stuff in front of them? I wish I had a clue there. Hopefully, word will trickle out. I guess that's all I can hope for.

Anyway. I have to go to PT. Wish me luck, there.

I'm sorry I'm broke, because that is a Patreon I would love to fund at one of the higher levels :(

Word to this. Even on one of the lower levels. Being broke sucks balls.

There is one other patrion we wish we could fund (And it belongs to a fellow multiple) and we has a sad because we can't fund either one.

What's the cost involved that's keeping you from self-publishing??

I need to purchase ISBNs. Createspace gives you free ones but then you are listed as published by them, rather than by your own publishing company *and* you cannot use anything but them to produce physical books. I am also concerned by some of the legalese I am reading, which makes me EVEN MORE unsure about using their free ISBNs.

So... yeah. I'd rather buy my own. But that means I need to come up with $250+ (depending on which package I get) in order to get at least 10 ISBNs.
