Dear Linda,

Why did you self-publish one of your stories?

1.  Because it was an older story that had already been with a publisher, and

2.  It was a horror story.  But in the land of romance novels and romance loops, and after being with a primarily romance-focused publisher, it didn't sell well, so

3.  Once the contract was fulfilled, and I got my rights back, I felt it was still good enough not to hide in a drawer.

4.  Therefore, after some research, I decided to go the Amazon Kindle route to sell it as an ebook.  I also got a new ISBN number for it.  Plus I went with Lulu to make it into a print edition, so I can sell it at book signings.

(The results?  It's doing VERY well over on Amazon!)
