I got the chance to speak to a cool crowd at the Conway Library last night.

Conway LibrarySouth-side Conway was representin’—peeps from my hood took up almost an entire row!

My favorite part was the Q&A. I was surprised how many good questions the audience had for me about the writing and publishing process. So I figured I’d extend the Q&A time to you folks who weren’t able to make it in person. Ask away. My answers are free tonight. 😉

  1. *Insert me wearing my Let Me Fall Tshirt & crying like a teenage girl at a One Direction concert* How did you decide you wanted to not only go the self-publishing route, but also start your own publishing company to achieve that? Also, what was the most difficult part of the process?

      You make me laugh Allison! I’ll make sure to save a sweat rag for you. 😉
      I was told traditional publishers wouldn’t know what to do with the half memoir/half fiction genre of Let Me Fall. Since I agreed with that school of thought, I didn’t want to waste any more time looking for someone to pick the book up. The decision to start Peracto Books came after researching numerous self-publishing companies and failing to be wowed. Jerimiah and I wanted complete control over the book project without having to pay for services we didn’t need.
      The most difficult part of the process: All the legal issues we had to tackle. (There’s a reason big publishing houses have attorneys on retainer.) Researching said issues was as thrilling to me as watching paint dry.
