I decided a long time ago that, when I published my first book, I was going to go the traditional publishing route with a publishing house. It’s always been my desire. Over the years, as e-readers became more popular, and self-publishing became more prominent, traditional publishing wasn’t the only way to get a successful book onto shelves anymore. However, my desire never changed. Traditional publishing is the way I want to go.
Over the years, I’ve had several people ask me about looking into self-publishing, and my answer has always been the same: “Yes I have, but it’s not what I want to do. I want to be published by a house.”
My reason is simple. It’s just want I want to do. It’s my desire.
And I’m happy with that.
