How did you get the courage to put your story out there to a publishing company?
I was advised by other authors to go the self-publishing way first, so that is where I am at. At this time I'm going to stick with self-publishing, however if the moment arrives where I feel a traditional publisher can give me more I will go that route.
Having the courage to publish Theia's Moons was a task all in itself. It took me nearly a year to get up the nerve. I revised the book several times before I finally set it down and realized I was getting no where very fast. That was when I decided I needed to take the leap and move forward with publishing :)
