While there has never been a better time to be a writer, being a creator/artist/writer still requires us to do different things with our work.
My yearly overhead costs:
Website: $175, includes domain, hosting, design
Newsletter: $600, @ $50/month
There are other miscellaneous needs that pop up throughout my book writing time, but these costs are ongoing. Book covers, editing, and promotion costs are all things I've learned to juggle and balance better over the years.
