Advice Needed

Hello everyone! I wanted to give you an update as to where I was at with my story. As previously posted, I've been debating whether I should self-publish or not. Shortly after I did my last post, I received an email from an agent who requested more material.

Long story short...after waiting two months, she finally responded back with the typical "thanks, but no thanks." Still, at least this story stirred some interest via traditional publishing, which is more than I ever accomplished before. But now it's time to focus on the here and now. I'm currently working on getting my story professionally edited, and then I'm going to upload it on Amazon. I was also recommended Smashwords so I'm thinking of trying that as well (LOL, well, depending on how much money I have left after Amazon and editing.) I also created a book cover while I was waiting to hear back from the agent so that's taken care of.

Have any of you ever self-published? Any sites that you'd recommend?

  1. So excited that you're so close to publishing! In another fandom I follow, one of the writers is getting ready to publish an e-book on Amazon. Another person recommended this site to her: http://theindievoice.com/

    I thought I would pass it on in case there's something useful on there for you. Keep us updated!
