I was recently watching Good Morning America and saw a story that reminded me of all the authors I work with and all the people who visit this blog. The story was about a group of young men who decided to create a list of things they wanted to do before they died. Then, they set out to complete the list. Along the way, they talked to other people to find out their dreams. This all lead to them writing a book called What Do You Want to Do Before You Die?
The story intrigued me because “write a best-selling book” was one of the items on their bucket lists, and they’ve actually taken the time to write and promote their book. While it’s not a best seller yet, it has the potential to be one. This reminded me of all the people I’ve heard say that they want to write and publish a book before they die. With self publishing, you can.
If publishing a book is on your bucket list, there is an easy way to cross it off. Finish that manuscript, and start the self publishing process. There are no agents or editors to squash your dream. You are in control. Don’t wait until you’re old or sick and wishing you’d done more things on your bucket list. Start living today, and make those dreams come true.
