First and most obviously: never give up.
Second, don't assume you have a good story. Goodreads has a BETA reading page that you can use to see if others like your story.
Third, get a professional editor. You can use UpWork or even look on Google for professional editors. Don't you dare think you alone can edit your work - you are wrong.
Fourth, send it to agents! Don't go straight to self-publishing (in my opinion). Some of us do, but let me tell you, it costs money! I didn't even realise how much until I was in too deep. Try your luck with an agent and if in 6 months you still have no offers, self-publish.
Fifth, be positive. If you get bad critics that's fine. You can edit your story and make it better at any time. Just remember that grammar and punctuation in a novel IS important. Don't rush off to get published without having a book that is near perfect in these areas.(less)

Hey everyone, 

I'm sorry I haven't updated you all in a while regarding The Chosen Saga.

So, I've made the decision to unpublish GOMAL. I could tell you it's because life is busy at the moment, which it is: I've just had a gallbladder surgery, c-section, and have two children, both of which right now have chest infections (which I myself have but I don't really care if I have it). But it's not th...

I received this copy from NetGalley and this book is amazing. The main character is a teenager in every sense of the word. She is stubborn, hardheaded, she bucks authority. She is contrary just to be contrar..." Read more of this review »

“She smiles. ‘I like black because it reminds me of night. You can only see all the stars when the sky’s black.”
Giselle Simlett, Girl of Myth and Legend

“I put my head on his shoulder
‘Wh-what are you doing?’ he yells, shoving me away from him with wide eyes.
‘I was giving you a hug!’ I say.
‘Y-you-!’
‘Pff. D’you really think I’d do that? I’m trying to keep warm, idiot. You’re like my overgrown Furby.’
‘I’m in a human form, not my kytaen!’
‘Tomayto, tomahto.’ I come close to him.
He pushes me away. ‘You shouldn’t be doing that!’
‘What’s the problem? You said you’re my tool, right? Well, I’m cold, tool of mine, so why don’t you calm the hell down and give me some of that sweet, sweet warmth?’
‘Don’t touch me!’
‘I’m starting to think you’re self-conscious in this form. You let me cuddle you in your other-‘
‘We did not cuddle!’ he shouts.
I manage a grin. ‘Would you prefer I use a different word? Snuggle, maybe?”
Giselle Simlett, Girl of Myth and Legend

“How to explain this? A shadow kytaen becomes, in a way, the shadow of their keeper, and when the keeper chooses it to, the shadow will detach itself like It did just then.’
‘What, like Peter Pan?”
Giselle Simlett, Girl of Myth and Legend
