Farewell to The Blood Series

  1. This was enlightening for me. I had no idea authors sometimes wanted to self publish. I was under the impression that all self published authors were trying to get a publishing deal (I don’t know what it would be called). I haven’t read your series yet, but I’ll keep an eye out for it when it’s rereleased.

    1. Hi Megan! Thanks for stopping by. =) It can go either way, depending on the author. The idea still lives that publishers are the gateway to the Big Bucks, which is sadly no longer true. Only a very small percentage of writers make enough from royalties to do this full time, and the cost to publishers (especially print) is so high, they HAVE to be choosy about whom they publish, so a lot of potential talent falls through the cracks.

      With the birth of self-publishing, the barriers have been removed, so there are no more limits to what an author can do on their own. That leaves the question of what they can/can’t do for themselves. Some prefer to just write and leave the rest to a publisher. Others, like me, like having a say in every step of the process. It’s a lot more work, but also more rewarding, because each book is my baby. I’m a control freak that way. LOL

    1. Thanks, Allyson! In many ways, this decision was much easier than trying to find a publisher back when I first started. I know in my heart it’s the right move for me, but I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone else if they have an iota of doubt. It’s not something you can undertake lightly. 🙂
