How to Get Over the Embarrassment of Writing Romance for a Living

The first thing I want to say is, Happy Cinco de Mayo. May the force of tequila be with you today! :)Now, to today’s topic ... I’ve been a reader of romance novels since I was a teenager. I used to devour Harlequins and books by Dame Barbara Cartland. I’ve read hundreds of them; I particularly enjoy good, steamy historical romances.In spite of the fact that I started self-publishing ebooks in 2002, I didn’t write my first romance novella until 2013. Since then, I’ve gone on to write 31 more.…See More

Profile Information

Who I am:
My name is Yuwanda Black and I'm a freelance writer, author and web entrepreneur.

I've been a freelance writer since 1993, an ebook writer/publisher since 2004 and an internet marketer since 2008.

TRAVELING FREELANCE WRITER

My primary residence is in Atlanta, but I live part time in Jamaica (Negril). I visited for the first time in 2009 and started going back on a regular basis. After so many trips (and so many expensive hotels) I thought, "It's cheaper to rent."

So I did!

THE THING I LOVE THE MOST ABOUT MY CAREER

The thing I love the most about being a writer is that it allows me to live and work where I please. As long as I have an internet connection, I'm good to go.

I've worked everywhere from a hotel room in Barcelona, Spain; to a cafe in Stockholm, Sweden; to a farm house in Cordoba, Argentina. As far as work, I feel like the luckiest girl alive most days.

THE THING I LOVE THE MOST ABOUT BEING AN EBOOK WRITER/SELF PUBLISHER

In a phrase, "income stability." As long as I can write (ie, produce new products), I can make a living. How much I earn is entirely up to me. Thanks to places like Amazon and Barnes & Noble, you don't have to be famous to make a living as a writer.

RUNNING, RUNNING, RUNNING!

I'm also a marathon runner. I've completed almost a dozen marathons and am always training for the next one. One of the most fun ones was the half-marathon in Negril, Jamaica in December 2011 (and 2012).

LIFE PHILOSOPHY

Just do it! (As a runner, of course Nike's philosophy fits who I am :-)).

LEARN MORE ABOUT ME

You can learn more about me at http://InkwellEditorial.com/about. Inkwell Editorial is my freelance writing website. It's been live since 1999 (for better or worse, especially design wise) and has hundreds of articles on how to start a successful freelance writing career.

You'll also find info on ebook writing/publishing, blogging, social media, SEO, article marketing and more.

CONNECT WITH ME ON TWITTER

Connect with me on Twitter at Twitter.com/InkwellEditor. It's my preferred social media outlet.

Thanks for dropping by, and feel free to send me any questions you have about freelance writing, ebook writing, and/or self-publishing in general.

Sincerely,
Yuwanda
