Publishing in the Age of Independence: Part 1

Okay,  so I’m nearing the end of the final draft of my next novel, The Orphans of the Creek, which means that soon I’ll let it take it’s first baby steps into the cruel and unusual world of publishing. And thanks to what I call the Age of Independence, no longer is the desperate author forced to go into a publisher’s office on their knees with cap in hand if they ever hope to see their work in print. We actually have options!

My next few blogs will take a lighthearted look at the three big options (or what I call the Unholy Trinity) facing today’s intrepid author: Traditional Publishing, Self-Publishing, and e-Publishing. Three very different roads fraught with hard work and frustration.  But, like the path to the God of your choosing, all can result in the same reward but with varying degrees of success.

Hopefully some of you writers reading this will either relate or gain some measure of insight. And to the strictly-reading crowd: keep reading. We need you!
