Just out of curiosity, how did you do it?

Yeah, I know someone who published a mystery noval called A Corpse for Cuamantla I think, but she didn't do it through a big publishing company. How'd you do yours?

I published independently through Create Space, Amazon, and Kindle Direct Publishing. I'm looking to expand into iBooks and Smash Words in the first quarter of 2013 after my Kindle Select contract expires.

Was it really hard to do? Or expensive? I've looked into some publications before and some of them can go really high in price. :(

It was neither difficult nor expensive, though I only have my own personal copy and the rest are all considered sale products.

I've been trying to write a full-length novel, but I keep getting blocked up and just can't get any farther. How did you manage to keep it up without getting to the point where you thought it was hopeless, because that's kind of where I am now...

The entire process took just shy of two years, mainly because I was juggling school, work, and my personal life along with writing the novel. My best advice is just to keep writing, but balance things out with other creative pursuits. In addition to writing ficiton, I write editorials, work on short films, write poetry and song lyrics. It helps to break up the monotony of working on one story for so long.

I write songs and poetry as well, and I try to incorporate them or at least connect them with a story, to help give me ideas. Thanks for the advice. I read a bit of your novel on Amazon, and it's really good. I might have to get a copy and read it over Christmas break.
