All done!

Much faster then I had dared hope, I believe I have actually finished Nebulosus. I figured I'd know the ending when I got there, and I certainly did.

Now it's rejection time! YAY!


  1. What you may want to look into is self-publishing through a service like Lulu. You upload your files, set the price you want to charge for the book, and sell it online. They take a certain percentage of the profits, but they'll publish it (physical books, not ebooks) and ship them out to whoever wants to buy it.

    I haven't used it, myself (I've been off-and-on writing a novel for the past few years, but am nowhere near finished, mainly because it's going to be more than just a book), but I've heard from a few friends that have used it that they're reliable.

  2. I'll look into it for sure.

    One thing appeals to me about going through an agent, though. They know what works. I'd rather get rejected flat out and told what I need to fix, as opposed to just kind of floundering and not knowing why.

  3. That's very true. However, that is assuming that they'll cooperate with you upon rejection and actually go over what didn't work out.

    I've not looked into it, but I doubt that they would give you any advice without charging you. Proofreaders charge quite a bit from what I've seen. While I doubt you'll need a proofreader, per se, it's still unlikely that any professional in the industry is going to give free advice.

    But hey, it doesn't hurt to try.

  4. From what I've read, agents will, if they feel your work is worthwhile.

    But, yeah, it doesn't hurt to try, and we'll see.
