I have had some mixed responses about my self-publishing route. Some people think that I have just given up on finding an agent... but I haven't. My ultimate goal right now is to obtain an agent.
That is why I just sent out a query letter (a letter asking an agent to check out my book)with a wish and a prayer into the pile of other queries clogging another agent's inbox.
So, if any of you are best friends with a fabulous agent, :D, please refer I Wish... their way.
