Why I Chose the Self-Publishing Route

It started out simply enough really. A short story challenge given to me by a friend had grown. It had grown by about an additional 180 pages to be exact. Writing the great American novel had never really been in my life plans, and yet, here I was, polishing off a short, but respectable novel just shy of 60,000 words.

I enjoyed the process; I relished in the research that I did, became giddy when the plot line took an unexpected turn, and believe it or not, when my long suffering beta readers pointed out the glaring flaws in my plot line, I was grateful. Over the next months, I edited, revised, got it looked at and edited professionally, and did everything I could think of to make sure that it was the best that it could be. While in all honesty I don’t think I will ever be completely satisfied with the work I do, including The Spring and Autumn Murders, it came to the point where I had to let it go and see if it would survive the initial push out of the nest.
