That’s right, I have an opportunity to float on over to the traditional publishing world! Well, two opportunities actually- in the last few weeks, I’ve had TWO offers from two very different indie publishers. It should be a dream come true, right? Right?! How could I even be considering turning them both down?
So many things to think about here.
First of all, one of the publishers is e-book only. BUT, I’d get to keep the print rights- so technically, I’d still be self-published with the paperback version. I don’t know how I feel about that though- they wouldn’t be linked on Amazon. Different edits, different covers…it’d be like having two completely different books out there…
Not to mention, I LOVE my current cover. And then there’s the reviews to think about…I cherish each and every review I’ve received on Amazon and Goodreads. If I take the book down and sign a contract with a publisher, I lose all of those kind words that are sooo dear to me!
While I’m rambling, let’s go ahead and throw in the bizarre moral obligation I feel to the wonderful self-pub world. A strange guilt has washed over me at the mere thought of abandoning my proud post as ALYSHA KAYE, SELF-PUBLISHED AUTHOR.
There’s also the inevitable feeling of, “What if an even BETTER offer comes along, and I just need to wait it out?”
It’s a tough call to say the least. I wish I had a year to think it over, but I’ll be making a decision before this month is over I’m sure. Wish me luck!
And check out THE WAITING ROOM while it’s still in it’s lovely original format 😉
Before THE WAITING ROOM was released to Amazon, I did what every self-published author does: I emailed an ARC to any lovely book blogger who was willing to give it an honest review!
Many of them have been my #1 supporters–not just posting blogs, but hosting interviews, sharing on Twitter and Facebook, re-posting on Amazon and Goodreads, and more. These people have shown me more love than some of my own family and friends (sadly).
But what about those other book bloggers?
…you know, the ones who promised an honest review but then…disappeared faster than underage college kids when the cops show up to a frat party.
I mean, I sent you an ARC, man! And a follow-up email!
Is this just something indie authors have to live with? Am I rightfully bummed?

The author of a new romance novel about reincarnation doesn’t seem like someone who would have a good sense of humor especially about their own book. That is why this interview with Alysha Kaye is surprisingly funny. Alysha Kaye is a Texas State alumna whose new book The Waiting Room will…
This review of THE WAITING ROOM made my day (which is amazing since I am exhausted and sunburned from a rather tiring beach trip)!
