I can tell you firsthand, that being an indie author has been a consistent hustle for me. Despite this, I love it because it is the one thing in my life that brings together all my talents and experience and really feels effortless. The marketing aspect of it though, unfortunately, does not. lol Thanks to my fellow supporters though, whether family, friends, friends of friends, colleagues, etc., I was able to stay in this game for the past 7 years. And for that I give thanks.
