I’m hoping to wrap up the touring this month and concentrate on selling the book to a publisher. I already contacted my agent to let her know I’m ready to sell. Self-publishing is a great way to get your book out there, but it’s a lot of work. The only way I see making a living off this is to constantly stay out on the road or get out there and peddle my book on the street EVERYDAY. Since promoting and selling, I’ve had very little time for writing. I’ll have a spurt here and a spurt there. But nothing where I can consistently write and continue on with an idea for hours or days. Funny. While I was working 10 – 13 hours a day, I could get up at 4AM and use my weekends to write. Now that I’m a full-time author, it seems like I have less time to write. I know I can do this if I have to, but I pray to God that he blesses me with a traditional publisher. If I get one, then try it, then discover that it’s worse than self-publishing, well, at least I would have that personal experience to be able to make that judgment call.
