Did You Hear?
A small traditional press has asked to see a full manuscript of one of my romance novels. Not a sale--yet, but still another big step in the right direction.
And who knows, they MIGHT decide it's something they can use.
What does it mean: a small press?
- It's not one of the biggie ones.
- But it is a traditional one.
- They put out your novel faster than one of the biggies.
- They pay you for your novel as it sells.
- This one has no upfront advance.
- But you do get royalties.
- They published it first as an e-published book.
- A few months later, your novel comes out as a print book.
- You don't have to pay to have to have it published.
- You have to market, but then you do with the biggie publishing companies also. Only when you're a "big" name do they spend "50,000 on your marketing without you lifting a finger.
So, ya'all, wish me good, say a prayer, etc.
This time next year, I very well could be a published writer.
