Very New To This. Any And All Advice Is Welcome And Appreciated.


Recommended Posts

I joined seeking wisdom, I feel lost. :(



I have a semi self published children's book through a local publisher... friend of my sister's. (I know, I know, unwise decision) I felt like I was taken out to a deserted island, then left to figure things out for myself. And what stinks is, I paid them to take me out there and leave me! I've had three, what I refer to as handlers, they call them marketing specialists or something like that. I am soured on the whole incident, I am sorry to say. I do need to move on since I feel this is what I am supposed to be doing. I need research my way through.



Where does one start?



What is best, Self Publishing or Agent?



I feel extremely naïve about it all and, I am frustrated that I didn't start researching sooner. I have this children's book, along with another finished, and a third one started. They're a series, and they're rhythmic. I also have a novel finished and 2 others started, as well as ideas for a few more! Yes, I need help, advice, wisdom, desperately!



I will gladly partake of your wisdom if you'd be willing to share! !thumbsup!



I also appreciate prayer and will gladly pray for anyone who asks.



One more thing, before you answer the above question about which is best, self pub or getting an agent, I have 6 kids, I homeschool and I over use commas. (according to my mother :mellow:) I need serious guidance in this. Just something you might need to know about me, because I know it probably isn't a "One Size Fits All" solution. Thanks in advance for any advice you have and for taking the time to read my very first post! :rolleyes:

Hi, Welcome to the site!



I'm a newbie writer. I use the search engine in the upper right hand corner of the site to research topics. I have learned a lot by reading the past posts. You will find lots of information already posted about traditional and self publishing and how to market your books. Anytime I have a question I have posted it in the writing forum, and someone wiser than I always answers. Everyone here is very helpful.



I'll be praying that you find the answers that you need. Blessings on your writings.
