The Self-Publishing experiment

Well, I finally took the plunge. After writing eight books over the past ten years, landing a legit agent, and coming within centimeters of getting published by a major house multiple times, I've finally decided to take matters into my own hands.Highway to Vengeance was posted on kindle and nook, and I just purchased my proof from CreateSpace.Now all I have to do is find a way to sell the thing.

About Me:
I've been writing for ten years. Had a New York agent for three of them. Didn't sell anything but came damn close. Managed a Barnes and Noble for a couple years. Played baseball at the University of San Diego. Got my MBA there too. Just took the plunge into self-publishing.

OMG do I hear you on that! I went through a similar period of adjusting to critiques through workshops. I totally lost the story for a while!

Yes - long live the indie method!

Brian,
OMG-how absolutely agonizing to have an agent and to be so close! Frankly, I think that would give me more confidence in my self-publishing potential. I have a good friend who found an agent but after a year, he published through Lulu. That was a major influence for me in my decision to think ebook.
I believe a good blog for learning to market an ebook is: http://jakonrath.blogspot.com/
I found him through Amanda Hocking. Her success as an ebook author is positively amazing. She's obviously experienced a unique and ideal situation through lots of hard work and HUGE body of writing. You can also check out her blog for info on her experience: http://amandahocking.blogspot.com/
I hope you'll visit and follow me at http://mymotherstuttered.blogspot.com/
Cheers,
Ellen
