I’m back, fresh from a week in the hot sun and ready, well sort of. To take on the world of self publishing!!!
Scotland didn’t go independent!
I try to stay out of politics, mainly because I swear too much (so fu** off). But I have to say that I am immensely proud that the people of Scotland voted to stay within the UK.
And you know what, they deserved to decide that through a democratic medium. We all criticize our governments but there are many places in this world where that sort of thing is decided through the medium of war and violence. To me it was the finest display of democracy and thanks Scotland.
I have had the pleasure of working and seeing such a wonderful country with a population of a naturally mad and funny people, the type of people that make Britain great! I hope many places on this globe take a look and note how independence can be decided and that is through the peaceful mode of democracy!
I did say at the close of my last series of blogs that I would come to a decision when I return. But what exactly does that decision involve? (yes I am drawing this out, literally)
Do I self publish my first novel, Clark Thorn and the Warrior Project?
During my holiday I took some time to think, I walked along the sandy beach taking in doses of ultra violet rays.
My position right now is represented below (excuse my wonderful Paintbrush skills)
As you can see once the self pub path has been taken there is no return. But I have a plan!
On my ever continuing journey towards self-publishing why don’t I continue to try and acquire an agent whilst doing so? (This is represented by the engineering drawing below*)
*No British rail I am not available for your already brilliant design team
So that’s where I am now. In the next month I will be implementing another edit of my book and then a new search for representation will happen! This will involve putting together a top notch Synopsis and covering letter which I will share with you good people.
No matter what the goal is it will always be the same and that is to get my novel published and read by the world!
I think either way there is a leap of faith that I need to take, it’s time to stop hiding behind a decision I am somewhat afraid to make and go for it!!! (pause for applause)
I hope you enjoyed this short but to the point blog, that is the aim for me this series. Write something worth reading that doesn’t drag on! A few minutes in the Hall of information is all you need.
Until next time, I’ll be seeing you, please share, comment and like, have a nice day/evening/morning/afternoon
