No Guts, No Glory! A Hard Look at Publishing.

So you wrote a great book and you can’t decide to publish it traditionally or just do it and go for the self publishing guarantee. Well here is our advice. There is no sense in submitting to an actual literary agent and publisher unless you are going to do it right. Get a professional query package ready, including editing (if you can do this on your own great, it will save you a lot of money)and submit your work to them exactly the way they tell you too. Then hope and pray for the best. If you are determined to just get your book in print and take it from there because you like being able to do your own thing then go for it. Your own hard work will be your reward, and you don’t have to wait to have a great copy of your book to show off to your friends, family and followers. It can still be a daunting task, but it is fun and affordable as long as you don’t get carried away. Finally, if you are not famous, it’s going be tough to sell your great story to anyone, it’s just the game today. So what… write it and publish it. In today’s modern world you control your books fate. Do it!
