That is me, a novice novelist, a newbie. Like any other new undertaking I started with loads of enthusiasm and research. However with this undertaking, unlike any other, everyone I have come into contact with was helpful. Not reluctantly helpful but happily helpful.
I have learned so much thanks to the assistance of others and I know I will be relying on the assistance of others as I try to decide my path forward with my maiden manuscript. Agent or no, traditional publishing, indie or self?
I think this processes is going so slowly for me not only because I am new to it but because it is my first novel. My first baby that I am putting out into the world and you can only be a first time author once. For that reason I want to make the best decisions possible and am weighing all options for my introduction to the world as an author.
I would love to hear what other authors have learned along the way, any advice that they wish they had know before they published their book.
Thanks for the support.
