So I wrote a novel and then spent the next few years looking at publishing options. I may like to have an agent someday, but after years of looking at my options I don’t think I have what I need to get the agent I’m looking for.
I have decided to self publish (Nearly every writer in NZ has started with Self-pub as a. I can count on one hand the number of legit NZ agents interested in my genre and b. we have no legit publishing companies anymore.)
It’s going up on Smashwords first and then probably Createspace. The only issue is I’m not quite sure if it is ready to go up yet.
So I am considering putting it up on Wattpad first. I have researched all these sites. If I put it up on Wattpad it can be read for free. I am hoping to get some helpful comments on it as I do need a bit of critique on the story itself.
Right now the story is more important to me than the money I could potentially make off it.
It is also a good way to find an audience.
Part or all of it may be removed from the site later once I get more serious about publishing it.
I will update if anything happens.
