Okay, so I found out yesterday that self-publishing on Amazon, both digitally through Kindle and PoD through Createspace, is actually free. Knowing that I don't HAVE to wade through an endless ocean of rejection letters in order to get something out on the market is a great encouragement. Traditional publishing just seems like such a lofty, far-away goal for me; it helps to have something that I KNOW I can attain in sight. Because of this, I've been able to set some goals for my writing, and I want to know if they're realistic. Now, I know that there is like a 0.01 percent chance that I will ever make money digitally self-publishing, and a few extra zeroes get added to that if I don't spend lots of money on editing and marketing. But, making money isn't really my objective. So, here's my goal: I want to have a reasonably decent book up on Kindle, and have at least one person outside my immediate family buy it at $0.99, in 4 or 5 months. I'm unemployed and very close to unemployable, so free time is the one thing I have. In anyone's experience, is that goal attainable?
