I recently put my YA novel, Six Points of Light, through another round of edits and I think it’s as polished as it’s going to get before I can get a professional editor to look at it. My Kickstarter campaign is up and running to try and get the edit funded.
Self-publishing doesn’t necessarily mean “forever alone”. It does mean keeping your circle small and staying true to who you are as a writer. If your goal is to stay out of traditional publishing all together there has never been a better time to do it. If your goal is to be traditionally published, there has never been a better time to use self-publishing as a platform to get yourself noticed. Whatever our individual goals may be, we need to support each other in our endeavors. This is such an exciting time!
I am so proud and scared and worried and thrilled that my story is out and ready for people to see it. I have worked so hard putting it together. I owe it to myself and to my dad to put it out there. The journey through the indie-publishing process has been crazy and I am still learning.
