Being an introverted author presents challenges.
I have a compulsive need to write, to create, and to share my creations. At the same time, the thought of hitting the big time and having thousands of people know my name terrifies me.
I know I need to build a list and attract readers, and enjoy communicating with them. But I have no desire to be 'out there' touting my books. Launch parties, book signings, and other offline promotions are the stuff of nightmares.
