I've pretty much decided that I'm going to go into epublishing.  While the novel is nowhere near ready for publication (I'm not even finished with the first draft yet), I have thought for a while about gathering my completed stories into an anthology.  The eleven stories total about 85,000 words.  Yeah, some of the stories are long.

I'm not ready to dive in yet.  A couple of the stories need some work.  Okay, one needs a lot of work; I don't remember why, but for some reason I finished the first draft and did nothing else with it.  So now I'm doing an aggressive, line-by-line edit of it.  In some circles, this is called rewriting.

I might put together a little essay to include with the stories, something that explains why I'm a writer, why I started and why it's now impossible for me to stop even if nothing else gets published.

The only thing that I'm a bit concerned about is the method of payment.  If payment has to go through PayPal, then I won't be dealing with them.  I won't go into details but let's just say that I have issues with PayPal.

Why am I going this route?  Well, if you can't get published in the more traditional manner, it's time to go a different route.
