I received another rejection today. I’ve lost count of how many that is now. 

This time the rejection was particularly disheartening because of the way they phrased it. I know it’s a standard reply – or at least I’m hoping it is – but it just sounded worse. They wrote that they don’t think they’d be able to find a publisher for my book. It’s just so negative!

One step closer to self-publishing I guess.

I just don’t know how to go about it. It sounds complicated! I’d like to have a hard copy as well as an ebook. I think ebooks are great and make my life easier in terms of travelling around and shelf space, but I still like having a physical book. 

Marketing my book is probably the most scary thing about self-publishing. 

Aaah this is so complicated!

  1. There’s a lot of info on self-publishing out there. I recommend reading the blogs of some of the top dogs in the self-publishing game: Joe Konrath, Hugh Howey, David Gaughran, and Joanna Penn just to name a few. Self publishing isn’t easy (trust me!) but it can be very rewarding. And, it’s a burgeoning community. Most of the self-pubbed authors I’ve met online and in person are very helpful. We’re all just trying to get to the same place. Good luck! 🙂
