HI Shanziwe! I hope you found the help you were looking for. I went with a self publisher my self as I found it difficult to find a literary agent who would consider my fictional work. So for my fantasy thriller I chose LuLu.com a self Publishing company. They have differant priced publishing packages. They will also set you up with distribution of your book on Amazon and Amazonuk. As they offer Global distribution as well. This is one option you might want to check into.

Everyone who writes has a certain feel for what they are writing. Take your emotions and put them to paper. Don't give up writing if you feel it is in you. I self-published my first novel and it was not easy. Writing and creating a story are the easiest part. It's getting it known that is the trick. I have many different sites with my profile on it. This is so I can meet other authors and get their advice. It is also good for marketing your writing. You can go to booksie.com and create a profile their. It will allow you to post your work as you write it or all if it's finished. You will have people from all around the world look at your work and some will leave comments. I also found that contests will help you to see what you need to work on. A lot of contests will help you to show editors and publisher what you are about. I hope you have the best of luck with your writing.
