Release update? Kind of…

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately as to when the book will be available.  Currently the plan is to attempt a traditional publishing route, which, by the research I’ve done so far, can take quite…..a long…..time.

Best case scenario for traditional publishing:

3-5 months left for revising editing – that puts us into the month of September 2015

3-6 months to find an agent – Jan – March 2016

1-12 months for the agent to sell the book – March 2017

approx 10 months for the Publishing house to release the book – January 2018

By my research and interesting math here it could be close to 3 years before it’s available on the shelves.

Best case scenario to publish the book myself:

3-5 months left for revising editing – that puts us into the month of September 2015

2 months for designing the book

That means the book could be ready by Christmas this year!!

I have to be honest here. I know I said I would share with you the journey I experience in attempting to publish Pandora’s Chase traditionally but when I compare 3 years to less than a year, it’s much more appealing to publish the book myself, don’t you think? Especially since my goal with this book is something other than monetary gain.

Maybe I should think about this some more. Maybe I should put it to a vote with you all.

I feel a bit torn with this. Feel free to comment below if you have any thoughts on the matter.

’til next time, see ya.
