Self Publishing…Here I Come!

Three months and counting! I can’t believe I have made it this far, though I never doubted myself in the determination to be here, I never thought I would take matters into my own hands either.

I Don’t Want to Wait Anymore

Waiting to find an agent, waiting to find a publisher, waiting….waiting…waiting. I am so sick of waiting. Why am I a waiting? Because it’s the traditional way to accomplish my goals?

How the heck do I write a synopsis!?

Last night I spent pretty much….all night working on my synopsis. It was one of those nights where I knew I wouldn’t be able to get it perfect but I needed to get it done. This is a great exercise even if it doesn’t get me the agent. I started with a 1,300 word synopsis […]
