It has been a few weeks now since I last posted here and I feel bad. I’ve been busy with work, gym, friends, and editing my first novel. So, what to write about when I still can’t fall back to sleep at 5:30 am? Hmmm…I guess I can start with the fact that I can’t believe it’s December already. So much has happened this year. It truly feels like I’ve lived three different lives over the past 12 months. Crazy.
Lots of exciting things are coming up in the new year. I can’t wait for it to get here, really. But, of course, the Christmas festivities are going to be great too.
So, I’ve been up since about 4:00 A.M. (I SO needed to sleep well tonight. Oh well.) and in my tired, yet ever-thinking state, I have been thinking a lot about what to name my publishing company. As a soon to be indie author, I think it is an important decision. In my humble opinion, simply using CreateSpace as the publisher name on your book just doesn’t have the same professionalism as a uniquely named publishing company. And then you can’t sell your books anywhere else if you do that. I, you know, kind of want control over the stories I have slaved over. 🙂
Besides, I plan to write so many more books. I already have 3.5 novels done as it is. So, the wheels in my head have been turing at this early hour of the day. Probably not a very prodctive time, but it’s better than tossing and turning, right? I have come up with some interesting names already. I was thinking of posting some ideas, but then figured I might regret it later when I am more awake. I absolutely love the publishing company name my fellow writing friend, Lauren Waters, chose. It suited the genre of her books well and the name just has a creative ring to it.
I am going to try to get at least 2 more hours of sleep so I am more than just somewhat coherent for my day job. *Laughs* Wait, that wasn’t even funny, was it? Oh well.
Self publishers, did you decide to publish your books with your own publishing company name, or did you prefer to use CreateSpace, etc instead? And why? I am always curious about these things.
