Publishing Industry Blues

School starts tomorrow.

Part of me is going YIPEE! and the other is a little sad. I know my children are not disappearing but I'll miss their noise. Even with these mixed emotions, I did take a week off work to enjoy some peace and get my ass in gear for the coming year.

I'll be blogging about my goals on Paranormal Romantics on Monday and have a few days to think about it still.  I'm not sure what I want.

When I started on this journey the only goal was to get an agent and go NY. Then ebooks were born. It was exciting and I loved this option and embraced it with all my heart. Yet, a small part of me still looks to NY. At this point in my career, I can afford to take the time and shop a novel around the agent circuit but do I want to?

Will I make more money going NY or make the same?

NY is offering smaller advances with poor % on royalties in comparison to ebooks and then there is the agent's cut to subtract from it. Is it worth it to go that route anymore?

I've struggled with this all summer. I finished book one of a new series and need to find it a home. Where should I look?

Good Morning

Long time no blog.

It took me awhile to recover from the birthday bash. LOL

Honestly, I've been holed up trying to finish my latest book and I should be writing 'The End' later today. I've been working on this book for nine months and hope its worth the effort. I tried something different for me and told the story from four different pov's. Once it's done I'm not sure what to do with it. LOL
