Well, I’ve already sent out mini query letters to a couple of recommended prospective publishers. I’ve included information about my book and links to sample chapters of my memoir Leaving the Hall Light On, and I’ve told them I’ll have all the files in native QuarkXpress and pdf. So if they want to add my book to their portfolios it should be a slam-dunk. Plus I’m not interested in another hardback run. I would prefer a paperback and/or e-book.
I've also made a little pitch about my current writing work with links to my blogs Choices and Red Room, and to the PsychAlive and Naturally Savvy websites, where I blog every month.
And now the waiting begins.
I hate this part. The querying and waiting.
I thought I wouldn’t have to do it again until I’m ready to market my novel.
And, now I wonder if it is even worth it.
Readers, I need your advice on this one. Should I even try to find a new publisher or should I just go ahead and self-publish?
What do you think?
