If you’re going to write and publish it yourself, you apparently need to be good at self promotion. Crap. Why oh why didn’t I try to to get published the old fashioned way? Oh yea, that’s right. I allowed my fear of rejection, to rule me.
I know better, I really do. Usually I push through and try something despite the fear. *dramatic pause then bland voice ensues* “I’ve had mixed results.”
This time there was this other option. (self-publishing) I thought I’ll try that option and if it doesn’t work out, oh well. I’ll give traditional a go after all.
Sadly that isn’t possible in the publishing world. I’ve done some research over the past year and if you’ve ever published a story, even if it was self-published, than traditional publishers apparently won’t touch it. *Sad face*
Where does that leave me? I’m glad you asked it leaves me signing up for blog spots on other author’s blog, so that maybe someone will read my excerpt, like it, buy it, read it, and if I’m super lucky, write an awesome review of it.
Here is to 2018, writing blogs and books
