I’ve submitted my novel to 52 agents and have been rejected by by 35. I assume I’m rejected by the others because I’ve never heard back from them. So, should I start looking at presses that don’t go through agents or should I epublish on my own. The options are many for small presses and they are good with epublishing. Both will require me to do my own marketing. Of course, having an agent and a publisher doesn’t mean they will do the marketing either. And I’ll have to get my own cover created. I know I need to get my marketing plan together and start making some decisions. Of course, real life or should I say my current day job and home life do get in the way of my writing life. I plan to get back to this very, very soon. And get back to my new historical mystery too.
