My second printing of Mood Swing just arrived!

Yesterday the UPS truck pulled up outside my house, and the man in brown delivered several cartons of the new printing of my novel, Mood Swing: The Bipolar Murders. I've sold nearly all of my first edition. It occurred to me I could have signed and numbered them like an edition of silk screens or lithographs; the printing was that small. Nonetheless it's thrilling. Mood Swing is a print-on-demand book, and I'm very happy I took this route. I plan to use the same publisher for my next novel, Eldercide, on which I'm doing the final edit and revisions.

I tried the traditional route of seeking an agent for both books, but got tremendously discouraged, although the number of rejections I got before giving up (about 18 for each book) was minuscule compared to what many writers go through. I still plan to try for an agent and a traditional publisher one of these days, but it won't be by the old snail-mail query route. There are other ways these days. And I got to do my own cover art and have design input and approval as well. A most empowering process, and speedy, too. From the time I decided to go POD to the time I had my completed book in my hands was about two months.
