Writing Piazza Press
Getting published with a traditional publisher these days feels a lot like playing the lottery. The odds of having your manuscript published by a large publishing house is pretty much on point with winning the jackpot. With a multitude of authors deciding to self-publish instead, the game is changing for the book industry. I have been traveling my own journey as a writer and was planning to simply publish my work traditionally (in fact I am still querying my YA Sci-Fi series).
Along the way I started blogging about everything I’m doing to become a published author. It was through this blog that I wrote a novella called The Maladroit for the fantastic people who have been following me and my story. It started off that I wanted to give them a taste of what my writing is like, get them excited for when my novel series finally comes out. I had such great feedback on it that I decided to self-publish it.
I know that self-publishing has its drawbacks. It’s hard to get your work taken seriously as a self-published author (although it’s becoming more accepted) but I was ok with putting in the work and paying my dues. But then I started meeting other authors through my travels in cyberspace and I became more and more frustrated that their work wasn’t being snatched up by traditional publishers.
That’s when I made the decision to start my own impress. I wanted to help other authors publish their work. I wanted to help get more quality books into the hands of readers. That’s why I started Writing Piazza Press. Knowing how amazing it would be to be selected by a publisher for publication, I want to make such a dream come true for other authors. When I was little, when other people wanted to be doctors and lawyers, I wanted to be a genie. I wanted to be able to grant wishes. I am so grateful that now I will be able to do that for some talented, amazing writers out there.
