I am seriously contemplating self publishing a short story I have been working on. I am wary as I don’t really know what is involved, but I have come across Smashwords and think I might actually be able to get my work out there. This is both exciting and daunting.
I would love for people to read my work. It really isn’t about making money. I enjoy writing, but it would be great if I could then share my work.
I would really appreciate anyone who knows about how publishing on e-books works to help me out with advice. I have sent my first draft out to a few friends and gotten a bit of feedback and am now really working on editing and perfecting my piece but I want it to go somewhere.
I have also heard mention of Lulu.com but I don’t really know anything about it. Have you heard of it or used it?
I feel like I should take this scary step and (once the story is finished) send it out for people to read but I just don’t know.
Any tips links to blogs or advice would be so very welcome.
