My book is out to beta’s again. I went from 41k last week to 51k this week. So I added a good bit. A few new chapters and what not.
I am not going traditional publishing.
Nope, I’m going e-book publishing. I’ll be doing a 90 day exclusive with Amazon. After those 90 days I’ll be submitting it to B&N for Nook and Smashwords. (Which will get it on to Apple products)
I’ve fought with myself over the past few weeks about whether I was going to go traditional or self-pub. I even queried agents…a little bit. Honestly, I sent out 5 queries. That’s it. I wasn’t even disappointed when I got rejections. (I am HORRIBLE at query letters. ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE.) The more and more I think about it, the more and more I realized that I wanted to self-publish. So I’m going to.
I’m nervous. Really nervous. I’ve got back about 97% good feedback, which is great. But, how do I know those people aren’t just being nice to me? I know they don’t have to, but what it they are? What if Reds Hood is really a huge, steaming, pile of shit? I don’t want to end up like Twilight or 50 Shades of WTF. I’ve edited, rewritten and beta’d till I’m blue in the face. I’m not sure what else I can do to it. My MC has emotions, my main guy does NOT sparkle or brood. He also doesn’t have a sadistic side. So no whipping here folks.
*sigh* Maybe I’m just being paranoid.
Okay, i am being paranoid.
Within one month I shall be doing my “I’m a published author” dance!
