Thank you for this very informative blog post, Penny Sansevieri. You gave me excellent advice, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s grateful.
Not everyone may say it, but it’s in everybody’s dreams to see their published books on a shelf in an independent bookstore.
This desire is justified: obviously, every one of us wants to go down in history as a person who wrote a bestseller or even a masterpiece that future generations will gladly read.
This seems like a wonderful dream that just comes true when you finish writing your book. Yet, in reality, not everything is as easy as it may seem. It’s likely that a publishing house will refuse to work with you or the editor won’t like your book. Besides, the added expense of working with a publishing house can strip you of the money that you can put into really smart book promotion strategies.
