Publishing Independently It would have been nice to have done it through the normal route: going through a literary agent, being accepted by some publisher after several rejections and then seeing one’s book on some bookshelf.
However, for someone who has been quite emotional, vacillating as to which book concept to focus on, doing it on one’s own time table may be the best way to go, hence, I decided to self-publish, which, in truth, may also be the better choice for someone who’s paranoid about the implications when one turns over one’s work to a publisher.
The situation is also aggravated by the fact that there are financial concerns that must be resolved in the near future, and waiting for someone else to decide one’s fate cannot be indulged. This also led to the natural conclusion that I must proceed with publishing in the e-book format to keep all possible costs down.
Erotic Romance My first choice was to write a fantasy book in the young adult genre. However, when I became saddled with a writer’s block of some sort, I turned to something more familiar — romance. And, since I’m known in my ATwilightKiss blog for writing romance with an emphasis on the sensual side, I settled on the genre of Erotic Romance, hence, Huntsman, which is a retelling of the Snow White fairy tale. I’ll be making the first two chapters available for download soon, but I must give the warning that it’s for mature audiences only.
Thank You Everyone I’ve met in the theater world are multi-talented; therefore, I’ve been fortunate to have been helped in my first endeavor by actors who also dabble in photography, graphic design and editing, all of whom I must thank profusely for making this possible. And, a huge thank you to my mom, for providing the means to acquire a new laptop when my MAC died.
