I DID IT!
After querying more than a hundred agents for my YA novel, and getting some interest and words of encouragement but no offers of representation, I decided to self-publish.
Oh, what a feeling.
The physical proof will be in my greedy little hands in two days. I’ll have the book for sale on Amazon and my local bookstore within a week or so.
We’ll see how it goes.
After the heartbreak of trying to go the traditional route, I must say this is rather exhilarating. I’m already thinking about self-pubbing my first adult novel as well.
I’d still love to have an agent to help me manage my career, but it’s not like I don’t have any other books in me. I’m about 25,000 words into #3 right now.
In the meantime, I hope you’ll check out Tough Mauve and let me know what you think.
Oh, and if you’re a self-published author I’d like to hear about your journey.
