Years ago I never would have dreamed of self-publishing. I was raised with the idea there was only one way to publish; Find an agent who sells your books to a publisher. But times have changed. No longer do we write by hand or an old IBM typewriter. Stories are written very quickly and published just as fast. Still being old school at heart I began my quest for an agent and publisher. After a year, I ended up turning down the two contracts I was offered and decided, if I was going to have to do most of the publicity and work myself, why not give self-publishing a try.
Eternal Lovers was sent to my old non-fiction editor who worked her magic on it copy edits , then I sent it to a more modern male editor for line edits. Self publishing has been quite an experience but I am happy to say I am more than pleased with the outcome. The process from writing to editor to print is so much faster than past traditional publishing — at least on this end.
Learn your craft and apply that which will benefit your writing style. Long before you jump on the band wagon of self publishing, I would suggest you start making your self known around the many social media outlets.

Build a website, blog and join face book, twitter and other such sites. Let people know you are a writer and what you have to offer them. You are going to need them too before you release your self published book. This sounds a bit overwhelming and it can be if you let it get to you. Do you or have you belonged to a writing organization? Which one? Have the helped you with your writing?

I firmly believe no one understands a writer like another writer especially when you start talking about the voices in your head. I think every writer has at least one rejection story. I know I have a few. I had started a rather hot contemporary romantic piece which boarded on main stream erotica. Somehow, my work ended up in the hands of a Christian inspirational author who had volunteered to judge the contest. How she ended up judging erotica is yet to be discovered by me but she did. Needless to say, my scoring was at the bottom of the pile.
I came pretty close to tearing up the manuscript and tossing it into the trashcan.
Thankfully, I opened the second score sheet. The second judge raved about my exciting concept, calling it a fresh and welcome change. Nelson, in exchange for an honest review. So the companionship that Nowaki offers him is truly a special bond. Meanwhile Raphael keeps having dreams of a beautiful woman, with long platinum colored hair.
