Small fish: Big pond. It just might work out.
I announced last week that I have been offered a 3-book deal with Simon & Schuster’s digital-first imprint, PocketStar.
Essentially, I’m a little author with a little deal at a big publisher.
As you can imagine, going with them was a big decision for me. I wanted print (which I still may get) and I worried I’d be a miniscule frog in the entire Great Lakes system.
But so far, I’ve had an hour-long chat with my editor-to-be, just to say hi. And today I’ve been invited to participate in an online “author boot camp,” exclusively for S+S authors.
I can’t say for sure, but I think only Carina, of all the e-publishers out there, offers author training.
So I guess there already some advantages to being with one of the big guys. W00t!
