Most writers are in the same boat. We desperately search for a publisher who will take us in. The truth however is that unless you get super lucky, you will not do so, well of course unless your cousin, best friend or old school buddy happens to be a publisher. Many of us turn to self publishing for that reason. Unfortunately though, even when we self publish we find ourselves putting in countless hours that we don’t get paid for. This leaves us with few options but for those who have writing in their hearts, it is required to push on.
