I've been wanting to actually use my twitter account, but I just can't seem to begin to use it. I did the same thing with facebook. I wanted to use it for a long time, but really didn't. Then, one day, I just started to play around. I don't feeling like twitter is the same though. I follow agents no there, and some authors, but I guess I don't understand how people interact? Is there interaction?
Also, I have been looking into self-publishing. As this...last option idea to publish my book. I've thought of a lot of ways to promote it. My friends would help me make t-shirts, and we've planned on making a video--you know the kind that announce a book? Idk if there's a term?--plus my website, blog, and facebook. We've also discussed posters, (even doing that now just to get some readership). All sorts of things! It actually makes me feel better--knowing how much we can promote it, self-publishing or not...but I feel security with an agent, and I don't with self-publishing. Also, I'm in college and have no time for my writing (barely!) muchless anything related to promoting a self-published book. Needless to say, bad move at this point.
I still think it's amazing that people do well self-publishing! And I'd love to be one of those. :/ But I'd also love an agent who knew the market way better than me, because all I can do is research. Has anyone else considered self-publishing?
