The South Jersey Writers' Group is publishing an anthology! What an adventure it's been. It's a journey in itself to write your own story and self-publish it. It's a a road trip across the country to take stories from twenty writers with different styles and topics, wade through first drafts and pick the ones that fit together the best. (And coming up with a title was like riding a rocketship to the moon!)
We're having a blast with it though, so rather than just post cryptic teasers about the book, we've decided to make this blog about the self-publishing process too, from editing other people's stories to working with the publisher, CreateSpace, to figuring out the financial commitments of self-publishing (Yikes! I'm a writer, not an accountant!) and then, AFTER it's published, launching a book tour!
Follow us for some updates on how we're hitting the road to getting our stories in print. We'll catch some great views from mountain tops, but we'll probably miss a rest stop along away. (Or just plain run out of gas.) It's been a lot of work but also a lot of fun....and we've barely started! (Hopefully we won't end like Thelma and Louise.)
Embracing the detours,
Amy & Marie, Editors
