September 5 question - What publishing path are you considering/did you take, and why?
I have been writing since the prehistoric age, I.E. when a writer used a typewriter (gasp) and before E-books. When I first started out, I applied with several publishers and later found an agent, but I didn't have any success in the traditional world. Then E-Books (and computers:) came along. I found my niche and have never looked back. I'm currently a hybrid author. I have books with Kensington and I'm self-published. Originally, I published with several small presses. It was a great experience, I made many friends and learned the ins and outs of publishing. I recommend it for authors that are just starting out. There are some excellent E/small presses out there. From there you may decide you want to stay, go trad or Indie. Wherever your journey takes you, I wish you much success.
