So many articles are flying around touting conflicting opinions of self-publishing versus traditional publishing. I happened upon this one article morning through an e-mail subscription to some of the Writer’s Digest blogs. Writer’s Digest blogs offer a wealth of resources and I encourage you to check them out and think about linking up, especially if publishing looms on your to-do list.
A couple of months ago my agent and I agreed to part ways. As a new agent, her interests were diverse although her history in publishing had been in the Christian market. Her intention (and mine) was to present my novel to secular publishers but over the months she has honed in on the publishing world where she had the most contacts and influence–the burgeoning Christian market.. Working with her was an encouraging experience and I learned a lot.
Now I return to the starting point with a novel formatted and ready to go, a novel that, over a year ago, an agent was excited to represent. I’m turning to you for insight as to my next step and so I’m posting my first-ever poll. If you have an opinion or have had experience, I value your input. Any additional information you might share in comments would be a welcome addition. Thanks, my friends.
