New Years Resolution: Publishing
As a self-published author, I really need to put on my publisher hat and get paper editions of every book out this year. Case in point: both The Dark and Forbidding Land and The Drache Girl have been out for months in ebook form and aren't yet available in paperback. I don't sell very many paperbacks (whereas my ebooks are really starting to take off) but I think they help my exposure.
As for a traditional publisher, I still have a desire to see my work in giant stacks of hardbound editions, but I don't have much that will be ready this year to submit to a publisher or an agent. Maybe Women of Power. On the other hand, the publishers are doing such a good job of driving themselves out of business that I may not get a chance. Expect to see at least one major publisher fold in 2011. Expect also to see some big names going the self-publishing route.
