An authors beginning-Self publishing venture

When I first heard of the self publishing industry I saw a spark of light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe is because I am so independent. Honestly I always thought that it felt like a 9 to 5 five job to submit your manuscript to big publishing houses.

I have heard nightmare stories about people submitting their books to publishing companies and being rejected again and again and again year after year. Fortunately for me I never went through that since I always kept an eye out for things. The point of writing a book is to have thousands if not millions of people read your book. Publishing houses wont publish your book unless it makes them money.  Which is why a book like twilight series was selected along with a bunch of other romance vampire books.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t dislike big publishing houses. What ticks me is their choice of books to publish. It almost like Hollywood with celebrities. It doesn’t matter what kind of bollocks the celebrities get into as long as they get buzz they will get paid millions of dollars.

Ok Enough ranting.

The point is, I am kissing all hopes of getting publish by a fortune five hundred publishing company and putting it all on self publishing.

My name is A.J. Martinez and I am a fantasy author. As of today non of my novels have been published however I am counting down the days starting now till I become a best seller. I dare to dream.

Fantasy novels are my thing. Diving into other worlds is breath taking and inspiring.  I want others to experience the same poetic joy.
