The publishing industry is changing. Most of us who write (and want to share our words with readers) are aware of this fact. And we are aware the probability of breaking through the “newbie barrier” and entering the Golden Land of acceptance and contracts is highly unlikely except for a very few.
So, what does a writer do if, like me, she is older than dirt and time is running out? I want to share my stories, want to see others read and enjoy them. Of course, that may or may not happen after I’m gone. But, selfish as I am, I’d like to be around to see it.
And so, while I will continue querying for some of my novels, I will usher the others into print myself, after I’ve washed behind their ears and combed their hair, of course.
…And Night Falls is the first to go out the door into the world. I published it on CreateSpace in February, and now, I’ll begin a new phase in my life experience…marketing. Maybe I’ll have something to say about marketing soon….
