Real quick –
I just submitted A Life Transparent to the Two Dollar Radio Movement. They’re a small, author-focused publisher whose mission is to bring the art and literature back to publishing. They’re not about numbers and sales. Best of all, they’re not backwards enough to reject self-published material based on the fact that it’s self-published.
So cross your fingers or say a prayer. I always get jittery when I submit something. I hesitated over clicking “send” for about ten minutes before I finally pinched myself and said “Just do it already.”
Now I’m going to shower and wash off the stench of failure that’s preemptively overtaken me.
Tomorrow I start the next book. Ready, set, go.
