I wrote my first manuscript 2 years ago now…my Memoir called “The 1st pancake” about all the times I’ve faced adversity and overcome.
I was so confident with my manuscript when I had drafted, re-drafted, sent chapters to friends for feedback (Vanessa was amazing at it, she took her editing job seriously) and felt like it was completed.
Getting not one but TWO book contracts offered seemed to confirm my confidence, I was SO EXCITED.
Google research led me to some very thorough and interesting responses to both Publishers as “Vanity Publishers”. With a heavy heart, I accept these articles and reviews from hundreds of aspiring Authors as true.
I’m going to decline both offers.
I’m going to back myself and hold out for a traditional publishing deal.
I need to do a lot more work.
