I did not expect it to be three months between posts. I really thoughts that my next post would be announcing a Facebook page or a publishing plan. Maybe some word on Crowd Funding or Publishing Dates…instead, I’m not there.
That’s not to say I’ve slacked off for three months. My book is getting edited, and I’m closer to having artwork for a campaign. I’m writing two other books that are coming along nicely.
But when it comes to publishing, there are so many options the possibilities get intimidating to consider.
I could ask for a lot of money and do a bulk package from a website, hoping that the extra expenses pans out for me. While this seems simpler, I’m not a fan of how much it costs versus how little I can expect back, and how little control I may have over it.
Or I could start a publishing company and do as much of the work myself, working to get several books out there and establishing a name for myself that way. This gives me more control, but I’m not sure that I know enough to use it correctly.
Lots of research to be done, and soul searching. Whatever plan I go with, I’m going to be going with for the first several books I publish, so it’s got to be something I’m comfortable with.
