I have returned from this year’s summer vacation full of renewed energy and inspiration. Each year I head towards Traverse City and spend a week reading, eating, and enjoying the sun without a computer or game at my side. This year it was a bit more cold and a bit more tiring than in years past, but I have come back with a fresh mindset.
I need to concentrate on getting the first book done on Phantasm Adventures IV and also find a publisher for my novel, Aaron Johnson and the Pegasus Chamber. After that I have a slew of short stories that I need to write, edit, and once again try and find someone to publish them.
Of course you can always publish them myself, but I wonder how that appears to agents and other people in the publishing business — does it show initiative or failure?
