    • Hi Char! Thanks for dropping in. I hope my story gives others some…well, not inspiration exactly–as I said, I got off pretty easy, so my story isn’t inspirational–but it helps to see how others have bumbled their way along. It helps to know you’re not the only one hacking through the jungle. 🙂

  1. Matt,
    Your story sounds so much like mine. I came to self-publishing reluctantly because I got scooped by another author who decided to write about the SAME protagonist as my historical novel. Mine (THWARTED QUEEN) came out last October, 6 months after hers. It’s still a learning experience, but I think it’s the best thing I’ve done.

    • Hi Cynthia – Thanks for stopping by. That’s terrible about getting scooped, but at least you know that there’s an alternative now–going digital–instead of having some NYC agent tell you “Oh, this is really well done. But someone already wrote about that this year. Sorry!”

      There’s room in the marketplace for two well-written books about ANYTHING, but I’m not sure agents and publishers see that.
