I've made a decisions.
And I'm going to stick with the decision I've made because I feel, at least for now, it's what's best for me. I posted a few months ago, that I was thinking of self-publishing. I've given the traditional route about as much as I can.
I've queried countless agents. I've gotten a few requests for fulls. I've even gotten a few, "I like this but I can't sell it." While I tried to remain positive and encouraged, it was a struggle. Each rejection was like a slap in the face...telling me I'm not good enough. Give up! But that's the thing: I can't give up. This is my passion. I don't think I could even function without writing anymore.
So, I'm going to self-publish my first book: Finding Me. I'd be the biggest liar if I didn't admit that I was nervous.
But I believe in my story. I've had three different CP's (no family or friends), three beta readers, and I've even posted the first five chapters on Critique Circle and I've gotten positive feedback. Well, after the MS was eviscerated a few times. So...
The weirdest day of my existence started with a kiss.
