Well, to tell you the truth, I don't get paid at all. Which is a shame. If I had an IT technician's hourly rate, I would have racked up the dough today! Formatting an excerpt to post on Goodreads took me five and a half hours! Now granted, I had plenty of interruptions, but still, that is insane. If I had taken five and a half hours to do a similar project when I was working I would have been written up at the very least. Now that I think of it, my paying job was so much easier than what I am doing now. I miss my office.
Well, now that I think about it a bit more, maybe I don't miss it all that much. But I must admit that my paid work was a breeze compared to my unpaid work.
I might be frustrated right now after my ordeal with .epub file formatting, but the truth is I am grateful that I have the chance to work on my series and get my first book out there. If you have not previewed the sample chapters yet, please go to Goodreads (it really is a great site for bookworms) and download the excerpt (Secret for my blog readers: I threw in an extra chapter). You may have to use the Goodreads Reader, but I took pains to make sure it was readable and sectioned by chapter. Enjoy!
