This. Every time I am in a grocery store and pass by the book section, I think, “I can be there too.”
Why would I want to publish a book traditionally that I had already self-published? Why am I seeking Literary Agents for a novel that is already on sale on Amazon?
Why? Why??? (Sorry, I have a habit of being over dramatic sometimes) I’ll tell you why! Since I was a young child I’ve always dreamt of having my books sitting on the shelves of my favorite bookstores. Whereas other children found joy in visiting the closest toy store, my solace came from walking into Walden Books or B. Dalton and sniffing (yes sniffing) the pages of a brand new book. I WANT to see my book sitting on the shelf of the closest Barnes and Noble or even Target (Gah, how i love that store!). And you know what? I WILL.
I want to go the traditional publishing route because it’ll give me more time to focus on writing…
