Hi, if you don’t know me, I’m Debbi Mack, and I’m an indie author.
I had no expectations whatsoever as to big success or making a living at it. And I have to tell you, these are things that I did not expect at all. What I hoped was that people would notice it and like the work, whether that person was a reader, an agent, a publisher, whoever. So after years of doing all the things authors were supposed to do, I decided to do this thing and self-publish. I did not expect to make a living at self-publishing. I most definitely did not expect to make the New York Times bestseller list.
I also didn’t expect a few other things. I didn’t expect to start a YouTube channel for one thing. Now I have three.
I didn’t expect to start a podcast, which is one of my other YouTube channels. I have the interviews on my other YouTube channel, the Crime Cafe.
I didn’t expect to post public domain movies in serialized form with snarky comments written in them, which I do on the third YouTube channel I have.
I also didn’t expect to take a documentary class. I also didn’t expect to post movie reviews, which I’ve done in video and in print. I didn’t ever expect to go to the Austin Film Festival or to become a screenwriter or to write a memoir. And I didn’t expect to love screenwriting so much. And all that with dystonia. So what’s your excuse? Just asking. 🙂 Thank you.
I forgot to mention this, but it looks like I’m going to be able to end the month of January less than a hundred dollars in the hole. That is progress. Yeah. Now, if I can just kind of make more, you know, spend less or something. One way or the other. It’ll all work out somehow. I’m sure. Later!
PS: Late-breaking news! I just learned I’ve earned $4.79 in royalties from audiobooks! Wow! Break out the champagne! 🙂
PPS: Hey, look! More free classes!
