Okay, so after that disclaimer comes an explanation of our Geeky Monday Moment for you. It comes attached to a bit of an announcement: I will be self-publishing Inito!
I remember walking into Barnes and Noble one day over a year ago and seeing an author with a table full of books ready to sign. At the time, I had just received my acceptance letter from Malachite Quills, and was full of excitement and a little nervousness about the process ahead.
So when she told me that although she was published with a small-press publisher, she wanted to self-publish her subsequent books, I was pretty sure she had hopped on the crazy train. WHY, I wondered, would anyone go through all the trouble and get lucky enough to land an interested publisher, only to give it up and go solo?
Well older Alyssa is a little bit wiser, so now I kind of get it. There are a lot of reasons, and I'd love to do a separate post about it later on, but suffice it to say its about control and cost benefit. I find myself now wondering: If I take a risk on myself and put something into my own work on my lonesome, will I get more out of it?
And that is the question to be answered! So I'll be blogging about not only why I decided to give the self-publish route a try, but what happens along the way! Because I have no idea how it's going to go!
In that vein, although it seems impossible, I give you this week's Geeky Monday Moment, brought to you by...
First of all, I like his face. Secondly, it's Doctor Who. You can't go wrong with a geeky Dr. Who moment.
