I’ve just put out my FREE novella to help drum up some interest for my new series out this summer.
It’s been quite a learning curve, self publishing can be pretty straight forward but the marketing aspect is huge to get your head around. And unless you shout about it, no one is going to know your book is out there.
It’s a difficult decision whether to go down the traditional route or to self publish but having been offered a contract, I just could not sign on that dotted line and give away the rights to my books, it felt as if I was actually giving away my characters. That’s the thing, when you write a fiction book you get so involved with the characters, it’s like they become real! Whilst it’s a massive learning curve and a tonne of extra work publishing yourself, I am hoping it will be a rewarding journey!
The Branden Bay cozy mystery series will be my first and yes, I might hit a few obstacles and make a couple of mistakes but the feedback so far has been really positive and I’m so hoping that others will enjoy reading the books as much as I enjoy writing them.
I’d better get back to finishing Book 3, so that I can sent it off to my editor.
Watch this space!
