Publishing…

Well, I’ve been looking at publishers and literary agents sites, and basically I think it’s safe to say that they don’t want to know you until you’ve already done all the work you will be paying them for!

Self publishing sites are a lot more friendly, though some of them want to part you from a significant chunk of money before they publish anything. Others are surprisingly generous, some only taking a small cut from your sales. They tend to be the epublishing companies. I suspect that will also be because they have to do bugger all work to publish you.

I have to say that the more I read the less certain I become. About the only thing I’m sure of is that any author will have to do all their own promotional work.

One thought on “Publishing…

  1. I have found that most things (worthwhile) in life require the individual to take a great deal of the responsibility rather than simply relying on those with experience. The good news; the end result usually exceeds expectations.
    The bad news; there is a greater need to commit time that otherwise would have been directed to other aspects of life.

    Good luck on your pursuits.
