For those who have not yet published, what are your hopes and fears? And for those who have published, what was the experience like--and are you still fearful?

The other thing that scares me to death is the remote chance of actually succeeding and will I, as a person, be able to handle it? Do I have it in me to deal with contract issues, marketing strategies, public notice?
These are the things that keep me from falling asleep at night. Yet call me crazy, I'm still determined to give the experience a whack and see what happens.

I was afraid of rejection and so are a number of my writing friends who are very talented. I decided to act my age and go forward. What could I loose, a few dollars maybe? That remains to be seen, but I doubt it is going to happen with my books marketed worldwide on top websites and available for leading bookstores to purchase.
I am very glad that I went forward. Please view my books "Where is My Bennie?", "The Beautiful Princess Without a Face", and "Zachary Goes Treasure Hunting" if you want a good example of what self publishing produces.

All are hawking their wares.
I am a writer, not a fish monger --- a relic of the past.
In today's marketplace, to be heard, you must shout the loudest, the longest, and have a gimmick.
Emily Dickinson, and the Bronte sisters, might never have been published in this world.
