Well, That Was Fast

Much to my surprise I got a text from the accountant this morning saying that the tax return was ready and I could go back out there to sign it and pay for the service.

Unsurprisingly our return was minimal (mainly due to the money we took out of the IRA for my knee surgery) but at least it was a return and pretty much covers the CPA fee so I’m grateful for small favors. Another writer I know said that she owes big time this year, so not going to complain.

However, it also means that certain plans I’d been holding in reserve for a goodish tax refund will have to stay in reserve until I can find the money for them. Which isn’t necessarily bad—it’s certainly a good prompt for me to get my ass in gear and publish more books, set up the Patreon, record audiobooks, and start selling signed print books directly.

The more I get into the small business owner headspace, the better. I know I can make a decent income from being an indie author, but I have to stop thinking like I’m only the Talent and start thinking like I’m the Producer as well.

About Nicola Cameron

Nicola Cameron has had some interesting adventures in her life -- ask her sometime about dressing up as Tietania, Queen of the Bondage Fairies. When not writing, she wrangles cats, makes dolls of dubious and questionable identity, and thanks almighty Cthulhu that she doesn’t have to work for a major telecommunications company any more (because there’s BDSM, and then there’s just plain torture...).
