I am now the very proud author of an internationally downloaded novel! Granted, I’m talking 9 downloads in the UK and 5 in Denmark. That’s 14! I’d be writing this post if it were only 1.
I tried the traditional publishing route. I spent countless hours querying agents and many more days worrying over and reworking my query letter.
For my trouble I received, on occasion, a response: a polite form rejection letter.
I looked into self-publishing. Should I go through a company with paid services or do it on my own? It all felt too hard, and besides, I wanted a publishing house to pick up my book. I wanted an editor all to myself, to help make The Knowers the best possible book it could be.
This was not my path.
Instead, I took the hard route of asking favors of my friends. Please read and offer suggestions…
