Murderous Tales is almost ready to be released to the public. The cover work is all that is left and then to decide which publisher to go with.
Murderous Tales is a collection of short stories dealing with a woman that kills for the kicks, a man that does it for revenge and another one to just get rid of his wife, and lastly, one young woman to save another woman.
It will most likely come out as an E-book first and if sales go good, then I will look at publishing it in book form.
Shooting for it to be out by April, but that may be pushing it with all the preparations that must be made to set it up for all the different types of e-readers. I want to make sure that no matter what type of reader you have you will be able to read it just like any other book.
This will be a new experience for me as I have always tried to get the novels published the old fashioned way of looking for an agent or publisher that deals with fiction. But, in these trying times it seem that unless your name is King , Patterson, Clancy and now Larsson, you will not be picked up by a large publishing house.
You will have to concentrate on the small publishers or go develop your publishing company and print on demand your own and others books.
This can be very costly. Most POD start at 500 bucks and go up from there. if you are rich then publishing your own books may be the way to go. Of course, if you're that rich or famous, publishers will walk over others to get you for their house.
Anway, we will see how the E-book route goes with Murderous Tales and keep working on re-writing the novels, hoping that I can convince a publishing house to take a chance on them.
What have you decided to do with your books? Leave a message and let us all know.
