To Self-Publish or Not to Self-Publish—therein lies the answer…
Frankly, I am tired of paying reading fees and entry fees. In submitting “Tales from Ma’s Watering Hole” I paid out a couple of hundred dollars in reading and competition entry fees. I haven’t heard back from most of these companies, received some rejections and one Honorable Mention. Great. So what now?
I would rather put my money towards self-publishing. In fact, I don’t have to put a lot of money into it. Just those reading and competition fees.
Repeat after me: “SELF PUBLISHING.”
No longer is this a lady of the night, an “alcoholic” in the closet, ashamed of herself and hiding.
She is a lady in literary recovery.
She is no longer powerless.
She is Madame Self-Published and proud of it.
This writer is tired of the traditional publication process.
This writer is feeling empowered.
Take discouragement and shove its ugliness into a drawer.
Pull out that manuscript and start editing…..
How to self-publish and where to self-publish?
I’m in that process and everything I learn I will share with you.
Writers need to support each other, share information and stay united.
More next time.
