So... It’s on!
|My brother, the man responsible for|
I’m going to publish Addled Kat myself with a little help from my friends, and, of course, my brother.
The first thing I’m going to do, though, is give all of you a look at the first chapter of the novel. It’s by way of market research, and, I suppose a teaser. Here’s the link, or you can find it in the list on the right. Have a read, and tell me what you think. Is it Chick Lit, and do you like it enough to want to read any further?
I’m also going to blog about my experiences doing this. I’ve always said I would never self-publish and I’ve given lots of reasons why I wouldn’t, so now that I’ve changed my mind, and I’m actually doing it, I thought it might be worth sharing the ups and downs of the process.
Anyone who has any experience at this should also chip in with stories and advice.
I’ve decided to use one of Amazon’s platforms, although I haven’t yet decided whether I’ll go for print, digital or both, so views on formats are also very welcome.
Now all that remains is to actually make that book!
I’m inclined to have mixed feelings about all this, but I’ve decided that I’m going to shelve any negative thoughts and stick with the positive. Whatever I’ve thought in the past, it’s always exciting to have a project to work on, and it’s always exciting to have a new book coming out.
I enjoyed writing Addled Kat and it had a very good reception from my beta readers. It’s unlike anything else that I’ve written before, and it’s unlike other things in the market place, apparently, so, who knows?
I do believe it’s good. I wouldn’t be putting myself out there if I didn’t.
So, here we go... The countdown begins.
This is T minus X days until Addled Kat by Adelie High is available through Amazon.
You heard it here first!
