Amazon is offering a new print-on-demand service called Createspace. So far it looks like it might be the solution to the problem I had of offering my books at affordable prices! I'm excited about what I've read so far and I am most likely going to release the paperback version of Emily & The Silent King using this service!
I have made my decision on an editor and am in the process of submitting my novel. It should take a week or so to get my edited document back. Then it will be up to me to get a flashy cover done. I am still considering, soliciting some freelance artist to come up with a cover for me, but I'm not sure yet.
