I haven’t given up on the dream of seeing myself in print. I’m still waiting to hear back from agents, and if they reject me, I will still be sending out query letters to more agents. But, after a lot of research, it seems that self-publishing your own ebook is a fun way to get your work out there for people to read. And that’s the point, isn’t is? To have people read what you write! So, I have placed my book at the absolute lowest price you can list under (the host, Kindle or Smashwords, takes a hefty percentage to cover their costs) and I hope that you will take the time (and money, but hey, it’s only $0.99!) to read and enjoy The Rhine Maiden!
It is currently available at Smashwords: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/22693 and will hopefully soon be up and running at Amazon Kindle. Smashwords will also distribute the book to other ebook sites, so it might eventually show up at the ibookstore and Barnes and Noble ebooks.
