I realized I didn’t finished posting all the questions asked of you nice folks. This is the last installment. Everyone had such wonderful questions. Some were easy, some were fun and some were hard to answer, but I’ve enjoyed this journey. Thank you all for taking the time to ask.
Karolee asked, “Have you done anything more towards getting your book published?”
Sandy asked, “How many books do you have ready to be published?”
Diane asked, “I would love to hear about your pending publication of Prisoner of Circumstance. Are you working on your next book?”
I thought about this and I could get an agent, but that would mean finding someone willing to represent me. I could try and send it out to publishing firms. I’m afraid that it would end up on the slush pile because they don’t know me. An agent once told me that it’s too Christian for one market and too worldly for the other. If you have an agent, then publishers will give you a chance. There is another option. Tom and I have decided to go the self publishing route. This is an expensive undertaking, but we are taking baby steps. As the finances allow, we will take the next step.
I just started working with a professional editor to get it ready for publishing. I have a friend who has offered to help me with contacts for a book design and a printing company. I’m excited and afraid at the same time. There have been times self published books do so well that it catches the interest of regular publishing houses. A girl can only dream right? At this point, I just want to see it in print. Maybe no one ever buys it and I have cases of books gathering dust in my garage and I have to beg people to take a copy.
I have only one book finished ready to be published. I started working on my second book, but life has been so very busy. It’s been hard to have enough brain cells to be creative. It seems the most I can handle is blogging. It seems to keep the creative juices flowing.
I love to write. It’s my passion. I know other writers who are more articulate than I could ever hope to be, but I don’t compare myself to them. I’m just me, simple and direct. My writing style I hope will appeal to someone out there. Right now I’m content to have my book on at least one self and that’s my own.
