Ok, so since I’ve jumped back into querying (after over 15 months away from it), I’ve been considering back up plans and options. I *know* my writing is 100% better than before, HOWEVER, there’s still the chance that I won’t get anywhere with “traditional” publishing. (Gonna give it my best, tho…I just can’t quit until I give something my best. Call it a character flaw, LOL!)
Well, what’s out there for us talented writers who happen to be “unlucky” in the query game? I know opinions vary widely, and I respect everyone’s thoughts and viewpoints. To me, you gotta do what works best for you, yes? Yes. That being said, I’m insanely curious about how people choose which avenue they pursue for publishing.
Some options (let me know if I left something out!):
- Traditional Publishing
- Small Press
I have the following questions for you:
- Of these choices, which do you prefer and why?
- How did you come to this conclusion?
- Did you try other methods first?
- What are the pros and cons of each?
Man, heavy stuff for a flake-out Friday, right? Listen, for your hard work, I’ll leave you with the following funny:
