30 Jul Crossroads
I feel like I’m at a crossroad with my book…
To query, or to self-publish; that is the question.
A little voice in the back of my mind keeps telling me to self-publish. To get my book out there, and do it on my own. I’m sure it doesn’t help that the querying process is a grueling one, and one that I’m not particularly enjoying. I feel like I’m wasting time trying to come up with the perfect two paragraphs that would summarize my 500 page book well enough to attract an agent, when instead, I could be working on getting my book out there; finalizing the cover, formatting my manuscript, and sending my book off to print so that people can actually read it.
The feedback I’ve been getting has been amazing, and its given me the courage I needed to take the next step. Now I just need to figure out if I should have more patience and continue querying, or if I should do what I’ve always done; go at it on my own.
I won’t lie. The latter is rather appealing…
