My November 19 post mentioned that I would not self-publish again until I found a real publisher for one of my two (semi) finished novels.
I have! Colorful Crow Publishing has my name on a contract for a work tentatively called Sudden Future. Someone is willing to take a risk on it, which is the core of getting a publisher.
And it happened before the end of 2022.
Hopefully my ninth will find equal treatment, and I may or may not go back to self-publishing. Being a content creator is a full-time job.
