DysCovered Publishing became a thing in August 2015, when, unexpectedly, I found myself self-publishing the first two books in my YA thriller series. Like many things in my life that have worked out for the best, this was largely unplanned. I fell into independent publishing backward after working with traditional publishers, and I like it!
Publishing my books myself is a lot of work, but it’s a lot of work I was already doing while under contract with my last publisher. I enjoy having creative control over cover art and editorial decisions.
I’m happy being a hybrid author. I’ll continue to work with McDonald & Woodward, the publisher of my nonfiction book, on new projects, and self-publish the Resistance Series. After that, who knows?
Retailers who are interested in stocking my books can order through CreateSpace.
Fips, Bots, Doggeries, and More may be ordered through Ingram or from the publisher at http://mwpubco.com/titles/fips,bots,doggeries,andmore.html
