With the advent of eBooks, amazon.com's self-publishing service is a viable alternative. You'll have to do all the editing yourself, learn how to convert your book into the proper electronic format, and also market the book yourself. But what better place for a new author to try? Amazon's marketplace is huge, an author can get more royalties (percentage-wise) per digital download of their book than from a printed hard copy, you can set your own price for the book (within guidelines of course) and the service is free!
I've been writing most of my life. Reviews of books and music, a cooking blog, classical music blog, oriental art blog, jewelry blog, origins of everyday things blog, an essays and stories blog, a series of western novels and assorted other things. I've self-published my first western novel on amazon, Heaven's Gate, and I'm working on preparing the other books in the series for publication. So I'm by-passing the middle man and doing it all myself. I'm going to give it a shot. Whatever my writing is worth, I've got nothing to lose!
