Book 2 Contemplated
What’s it all about really?
I mean self publishing. I mean it’s a nice dream but the odds are stacked against you. You really need to get into bookshops for the browsing public. But unless you’re prepared to take a gamble and print a sizeable number off the cost is prohibitive. And even then bookshops order from weird warehouses I’ve never even heard of so how am I going to get my books in there.
To self publish a fiction book successfully I think an author needs to have worked in a bookshop and the publishing industry.
And then there are the constant questions
* Does this book even deserve to be published?
* Would more people like it if they had read it?
* Is there really a market for a book like this?
* How should I best promote it?
Am I going to get it right before I die? Cheerful thought of the day. Not imminently expected but the ultimate deadline.
