Boy am I ever happy I don’t have to type on one of these babies anymore. I used to when I was in school, granted it wasn’t this old, but it wasn’t too far off.
I’ve been working on novel paperwork all day. I don’t think people know all the behind-the-scenes work involved in publishing a novel. I can’t imagine what my publishers have to do if my paperwork for one novel takes over 15 hours to complete. I’ve answered so many questions, I think they must know my life story by now. But whatever it takes to get these novels to print and possibly to the big screen is what I’ll do.
I’m a hybrid author by choice. I like having the help with promotion and by having that help, the few titles I self-publish can be streamlined in with my professional works. I like the freedom, but sometimes the work involved can be overwhelming. I need more hours in the day. But in the end, it’s worth the time to search your novels and find them on other people’s sites. I love to hear how my work challenged, enlightened, or thrilled someone. There’s nothing more rewarding.
Anyway, after all the time I’ve put in today, I wanted to give Kensington Books, Lyrical Press, and Penguin Randomhouse a huge shout out. I can’t imagine all the work they put into a book let alone all the hundreds of titles they put out a year. I’m honored to be one of their authors. 🙂
