10:51 am: Wright’s Writing Corner: Why I Deserted NY And Picked A Small Publisher

Hey, today an updated reprint of an article of mine is appearing on the Book Daily blog. Here is the beginning and a link:

Mid-March, I will be sending my latest novel off the publisher.


The Raven, the Elf, and Rachel, the second book in my Unexpected Enlightenment series—about an overly inquisitive British girl named Rachel Griffin with a perfect memory, who gets herself into endless trouble, romantic and otherwise, while attending a school for sorcery in New York’s Hudson Highlands—will be winging its electronic way off to my editor any day now.

When people hear this, I often find myself in the following conversation:

People: “So, you’re published by Tor, right?”

LOL No sacrifices yet, so far as I know, but I'll keep my eyes out.

You put your finger on exactly why I went with small publishing over self-publishing. I can barely get done the things I'm doing already...maybe if I didn't also have a gaggle of kids. Right now, the small publisher has the good part of self-publishing, without the part I am not sure I could hack at the moment.
