The agony of being published

I've had poems and short stories and articles published, but this was my first book.

And it seemed so foolproof with no cost to me. Just a few tweaks to my dissertation document and, voila! But...

The publisher has way overpriced it (meiner meinung nach), and so I am sure it will never sell except maybe to a few university libraries.

How awful it is to learn as you go along and not know the right questions to ask before letting your words be published!

Too soon old, too late smart. See what I mean at, title Creating Juicy Tales.

  1. Seriously: $87.99 for your book?! How did that happen? Can publishers really do that?

    I went to check out your book at Amazon at the beginning of the semester, and I was really surprised. Is there any way you can publish it with someone else? I don't know how the publishing process really works.
