I wrote a book! Yay, me! Those of you who know me personally may be wondering to yourself: Self, I didn’t know Stephanie was a writer…? (*looks around and leans in to whisper*) I’ll tell you a secret: I didn’t know I was a writer either until late 2011. Though in retrospect, the clues were so obvious all my life that I must be rather thick-headed not to have noticed before. The story of self-discovery, of the day I was smacked over the head (figuratively of course) with this realization, will have to wait for a future blog post. In it I will confess the entire story by way of an interview with the person I blame… er… thank… for getting me started on my novel-writing-journey. I’ve already suckered her into agreeing to let me interview her. [insert evil genius cackle here, with appropriate sound effects of thunder and ominous flashes of lightning]
When can I get my hands on this brilliant work of literature? Well, you can’t. Not yet at least, because it won’t be released until the end of the summer. And you won’t actually be able to get your hands on it even then — at least not in the traditional sense. You’ll be able to buy the book, but it will be digital only. No print edition for the paper-addicts in the bunch. I love the feel of a nice, heavy, “real” book in my hands as much as the next person, so I admit that not having a print copy is a bit of a let-down, but a minor one only.
Okay, so who is the publisher, and where can I buy said tome? Well… I’m it. I’m the publisher. And I’m my own agent, so you’ll have to talk to me about anything on the business end of things regarding the book. The book will be available for purchase as an e-book at most online retailers like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and iBooks, just to name a few.
Why did you self-publish? Answering that question will require a bit more space than I have left in this post, though the simplistic answer is that I’m self-publishing by choice first rather than because I had no other choice.
In coming blog posts I hope to provide author interviews, book reviews, as well as my musings on writing in general and some “behind-the-scenes” information about The Scribe’s Daughter. In the meantime, feel free to contact me by visiting the “Contact Me” page of my website.
