This self-publishing thing is quite a challenge. Although Glastonbury Tor was a finalist for a major award, it was not a big seller, and my publisher was not interested in a sequel. After shopping the manuscript for Honddu Vale around, an agent advised me to self-publish. She loved my writing, but my diversity of interests would not appeal to commercial publishers. So here I am—my own editor, book designer, and marketer.
I’ve had lots of help. My critique group offered plenty of suggestions along the way. My daughter is a fabulous proofreader, catching commas and hyphens and even, “Mom, this word doesn’t work. It wasn’t used until the nineteenth century.” (I’m writing about the sixteenth.)
