Under traditional means, we normally have a filter in the form of an agent or editor telling us when a story is ready for its close-up. But when you go indie, the onus is all on you.
How do you know when your story is ready to tell? A lot of the decision lies in being honest about our writing ability. Unfortunately, we're excellent liars--at least to ourselves. We're not good judges of our work until we've had a little experience behind the 8-ball.
Me, with my doubting-Thomas persona deliberately waited until I'd had a few novels vetted and published by professionals before I ever attempted self-publishing.
Today, I'm visiting with Misha Gericke where we can discuss just that. Misha is a talented writer who runs a wildly popular blog. All the cool kids follow her!
I hope you'll pop in and join in on the conversation. Add your two pence. I'd love to hear your opinion on what defines a state of readiness. See you at Misha's!
