Dear Published Author in the Blogosphere,
My name is Aidyn Sevilla and I am a writer. I’ve nearly completed my first novel and would soon like to make the transition from writing-as-a-hobby to being a published author.
Since I have not yet published any works of fiction, I am working to learn about the process from people who have done it before.
I wonder if you might share your thoughts and insights about the publishing process with me. Specifically along these lines.
-What are your thoughts on publishing through an agency versus self-publishing? Which do you think is better and why?
-If you recommend agencies, do you recommend any in particular? Or its correlate, do you recommend AGAINST any agencies in particular?
-If you recommend self-publishing, what do you recommend as strategies for self-promotion? Which blogs, forums, social media sites etc have you found to be the most helpful?
-My novel is fiction, particularly science-fiction/adventure. Does that change anything in the equation?
I appreciate your time and any insight you can offer. Thanks!!
I also appreciate any likes and shares so as to cast the widest possible net for my inquiry. Thanks again!!!!!
