Thank you, Rachel :)This gave me a smile.. at work, no less! This is definitely outside of my wheelhouse, so it’s definitely a learning experience.
Have you considered Amazon’s publish on demand for your book? I’m going to do a few that way so that when I push for a real publishing house, I’ve got some previous work out there to show various styles and to demonstrate my ability to get them written :p
I have no expectations of being successful with the ones I publish that way, but since all rights would be retained by me, if I ever did manage to get something published, I could always re-publish those as well. :)
