For those that don't know I've been successful in all three routes of publishing:
- Sold out my print run from small press then reclaimed rights and self-publsihed.
- Sold more than 70,000 copies (across 5 titles when self-published)
- Obtained a six-figure 3-book deal from a big six
- Been published (or beinging translated) into 14 foreign markets
Unlike some people who seem to think that there is only a single path of "the right way" (some say that is self, others say traditional) I actually have seen the good and bad on both sides and can generally offer a pretty balanced opinion. So....if you have any questions just let me know.
Great to come across your post, its also my first visit to the forum. I'm desperate for any advice you can give me, I've written my first book in a word 2003 doc it was finished in November 2011 After visiting various forums and asking questions mainly about getting it on kindle, at the moment I'm practicing but am just afraid to take the final step and finding it hard to get to grips with converting it to kindle. So much conflicting advice out there
Just need something that is not in gobble de gook, I'm a visual person and find it hard to read and do, great at being shown then doing it, watched calibre but no good. I've promised myself to just do it and have given myself a date of the Sunday 15th July 2012 or give up.
