It took me two years of gentle prodding to finally get my foot (in this case, scripts) in the door of a Manhattan (NYC) book store. This drama book store has been around forever and is the only exclusive script store in the City. To use the buyer’s expression, “we just have so much real estate” so I am doubly grateful that my books are included in their limited shelf space.
And just recently a publishing house contracted with me to publish Book 1, The Art of Murder, in my true crime series. Not for a second will I discontinue my self-publishing of my other books. It is a highly efficient and successful way to get your books out to the reading public with very little cost to you, the writer.
- Never stop writing! You will only become more skilled in your craft.
2. Keep knocking on doors, whether it is a brick & mortar book store, a publisher, or a literary agent.
3. Self publish. It’s free on some sites to build your book. Your only cost will be the royalty when a book is sold.
