Job Title Author
I’ve been writing for nearly six years now and I’ve always had issues calling myself and Author or Writer. What right do I have to call myself that. I’ve not been traditionally published so that means I’m just playing at it. Of course my confidence grew the more my books sold and I got recognition, but deep down, I was still insecure. Then something clicked this week.
I was invited to Selby Library for a local author event and there I met to other Self Published Authors called David Baker and Colin Eston. Just talking to them I came to realise that I am not alone in making the mistakes I’ve have. I also learned that feeling insecure is perfectly normal. There were lessons learned and I was able to pass on my own advice and tips.
Later that evening, I sat back and thought about it and realised this is what I do. I AM an author in my own right. My books sell and I have a readership. So my new job title is Deborah. C.Foulkes Writer.
