How to Create Your Own Book -- The New Options of Abbott Press

My Guide to Literary Agents Blog is all about -- naturally -- trying to get an agent. But not every book's path lies on the same route. While I encourage you to try to and get an agent for your work (and I can speak from a positive experience in the matter), some books may be a better fit for self-publishing. If you've got a novel in the drawer that agents said no to and you've forgotten about, perhaps that can be a great project to self-publish so some eyes could see it. If you're thinking about self-publishing, learn more about Abbott Press.
