My love of romance novels began with Harlequins. I would buy used books from my favorite thrift stores, tattered and worn with bent pages where previous readers had paused while reading the book.

There was something about the characters’ stories, the conflict between them and how they made it back to each other. I absolutely loved the simplicity of reading romances. There was almost always a happily ever after and the conflict between the characters was so interesting to read about.

Fast forward many years later, and that love continues. I still purchase used novels whenever I go on vacation, and now I download books onto my kindle.

A lot has changed since I first began reading these books.

Self-publishing books: My favorite side-hustle

Recently I decided to try my hand at publishing my own romance novel, and I am so glad that I did. Self-publishing romance novels (and books in general) has become my favorite side-hustle. And if you’ve been on the fence about writing your own books, I hope this post will encourage you to give it a try.

This summer I published my first fiction and non-fiction ebooks. I decided to publish electronic books because it was environmentally friendly and easier to do. These books were self-published, and the experience has been extremely validating to me on a personal and professional level.

And, I made money. In fact, the first month I made $540 with my first book, and it felt amazing earning money on a project that took me less than 25 hours to complete.

In my view, self-publishing is a fantastic side-hustle for people who have stories that they would love to tell and get paid for sharing them.

Currently, I am publishing romance novels, and I’ve also published a guide to moving to the state that I now live in. Both are selling, but in all honesty, the romances sell better!

There are some positives and negatives when it comes to self-publishing and here are some of the lessons that I’ve learned so far.

Self-Publishing cons

Sometimes self-publishing can be a bit of a guessing game concerning whether or not your book will sell and be seen by readers.

Self-publishing pros

There are a number of positive outcomes from self-publishing that authors should consider.

So, are you ready to start self-publishing your first book? Spend some time working on your book outline and get to writing. If you hate typing, there are also a ton of resources that you can use to dictate and record your book. Worried about grammar? There are even online tools to check your grammar before publishing.

Stop waiting for that writing contract and begin working now. Who knows, your online books may end up getting you in front of a traditional publishing house in the future.
