So, what’s the dream?
I’ve always wanted The Golden Lands (TGL) (we’re talking about the series) to become a long lasting series of books that people, including myself, can’t get enough of. I want people to fall in love with the characters; to feel what they feel, want what they want, feel happy for them, sad for them…I think you get the picture. I want people to think about my characters; about why they do what they do, say what they say, believe what they believe, or enjoy this kind of soup or that kind of soup (obviously the most important one).
I want people to enjoy TGL too!
As of now, as you’re witnessing my journey, I’m planning on self-publishing The Golden Lands very soon. It will most likely only be an ebook of some sort at first, but I’m sure I’ll move on to hard copies as time goes on. I know self-publishing is a tricky road to go down; tons of people self-publish, and it’s very easy to get lost in all the madness. What’s more, there isn’t very much appreciation for self-published books. Thus, while—let’s face it—not every self-published book is that great, it would certainly stink if the good stuff (cough) just got blown over on the assumption that it’s also lame too. So there’s a danger to self-publishing.
But it’s a lot quicker! There’s a better chance that your work won’t get stolen and changed by some back-stabbing publisher and you get way more money for each copy you sell.
So there’s good stuff.
There’s always bad stuff.
…Sheesh, writing a book is a lot like going through life.
I know, that was beautiful. (sarcasm)
