Maybe I’m not as cute and fluffy as Stephanie Meyer, but my life story has got to be at least as interesting as JK Rowling. My writing career has been as long and twisted as a Clive Barker novel. My contact list is pretty short and my ability to do much of anything that seems ‘necessary’ to network in the field is pretty limited due to my income. I probably have the same problems and inability in the field of art. Maybe I’m a diamond in the rough. Diamonds in the rough are pretty ugly though, and only recognized by people who have seen them before. So maybe I need an agent? But how to get one seems to be a mystery that even published authors that still haven’t got one. Self publishing and ebook publishing is a new, fantastic craze that appeals to me and to any reader that are tired of formulaic or ‘trendy’ manuscripts churned out by big box publishers.
But if anything goes, how can you actually figure out what to do?
