Hello to all writers and readers,
My name is Ryan Sherwood and I'm an author of two ebooks Hold the Light and Revenants : Fallen Savior with SynergEbooks. I've spent years chasing down agents and enduring the Catch-22 of needing an agent to get an agent it seems, as well as querying publishing houses of all sizes, to little avail. I have found several NY Times best selling authors that have started as ebook authors, lending a bit of encouragement to the doggedly-determined-to-the-point-of-delusional authors that feel like we're just spinning our wheels in the mud. I can't say I've have the luck as the aforementioned best selling authors, lacking an agent and money to advertising with, but its hope and much better than querying everyone and their mother to get my books noticed.
With the Kindle and other ebook reading devices, the ebook is on the rise, even if it is a slow ascension. And, as I hope, it can bring aspiring writers to print...or screens.
