That’s the way I’m navigating life right now.
Forget doing things the normal way and making a dignified entrance. Nope. I tried dignity, and I found that it did not suit me.
So here I am. An author whose first manuscript was rejected by traditional publishers. The novel was well-written and clean, they said, but the market was just too small. But there was one caveat: if I self-published and sold 1,000 copies, my book would be picked up. That was my quest: to typeset my manuscript, design the cover, and publish my first novel.
Well, it didn’t quite work out as planned. You can read all about it here.
And I couldn’t be more thrilled to remain an indie author. I’m planning to release more books in the coming months, so watch out!
In addition to my trippings in author-land (winks to Emily Chubbuck Judson), I will post and comment on links to the latest news in the publishing world so that, if you are a sideways-skidding writer like me, you can follow along or disregard at will.
