Self publishing – Yes or No

I wanted to traditionally publish. I sent queries to agents and publishers. I was so very close to getting a publishing deal, but I wasn’t the perfect fit. So I decided to self publish. I hired an editor, who transported my story. Without her I wouldn’t have got the response I did.

The advice I would give other writers would be to first get your writing beta read. Hire an editor. Make it prefect before it is self published and your words will shine.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.
