Thank you for welcoming me to Book Blogs! I have to say, your blog post is so, so true. Although I haven't gotten to the agent-finding stage (yet) I hope so soon. 

Find Lust For Stories's blog, Twitter, Facebook page (which unfortunate is in the process of renovation.

Hi Deidre-Thank you for the hearty welcome. I decided to self-publish because I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. I look forward to reading your thoughts!

Have a fantastic day!

Agh, an agent? I've spent the last three years and one-hundred thirty-seven rejects trying to get an agent. The whole process is a nightmare! I tweaked my query, researched, cried, tweaked somemore, emailed, mailed, cried... Then I just decided to self-publish. I know I'm not the only one that is agent-challenged, so I would be excited to follow you on your blog. I know like many other writers, the story never stops at one. It seems that once I opened the creative floodgate my mind wouldn't shut off. So they may not want my first book, but whose to say I can't find an agent to take one of the others...

I think I forgot to leave you my blog address: Again, I really love your site and will be visiting it a lot. Just glancing over some of what you wrote gives me great ideas! Wow!

Hi Deidre,

So what do new authors who have published an ebook novel on Amazon which has just had a top five gold star rating from the one person who has bought it this month do to let other people who love the epic fantasy genre know about its existence? I want reviews but I don't want to pay for them - that seems akin to vanity publishing. I hate to sound negative but I just wanted to get my novel 'The First Warrior' published then let it sell itself. I don't have the natural ability to sell myself, I am the strong silent type, so how do I publicise my trilogy? I am about to publish the second book on Amazon but with litle hope it will sell, not because it is no good, I have come to realise that the content alone is not enough but I don't want to pay for glossy covers and marketing hype, so what do I do? Can a novel succeed on its merits?

Hi Deidre,

Thanks for the welcome! You have a great site. I'm going to try the agent route for my next book - like you, I want to experience both. I'm now following you!
