You always think of a job as something that makes you money but so far that has not been the case. The start up for an author is expensive! You have to buy the domain for the website, pay for a verified email, editors, artists for covers, marketing costs and so on. Not a cheap endeavor. However if you truly want to get your work out there and become known so you can make money it is needed. A few year ago I tried without all this and sold nothing! You have to spend money to make money people! So if you are thinking about doing this yourself I recommend you have a few hundred set aside for start up capital (minimum $500) or start a gofundme campaign. I have a few author friends that have done so because they are working for marketing companies and writing and still not making ends meet. They are losing money and about to lose their houses or miss rent or not be able to feed their family. It is scary and stressful. So do your favorite authors a favor and skip using KU and buy their books! It can literally save their lives. No one wants to give up on their dream.
I love to write. In my spare time I nerd out on manga and anime. I read...a lot. When I am pried away from that I like photography (by that I mean a digital camera that I use to document my family's life... obsessively so). I also like nature. I am told I am like a puppy because if I do not get my daily walk outside I am unbearable to be around.
