Did you query agents and traditional publishers? How long before you got your offer of representation/your first contract?
What factors influenced your decision to go with a particular agent or publisher? The fact that this publisher accepted submissions directly from authors was a deciding factor, added to their very good reputation in producing good quality books.
Are you currently under a traditional publishing contract for future books or do you have manuscripts that you will publish directly for Kindle?
Did you design your cover art? If not, would you care to share your graphic designer’s information?
If you used a graphic designer/publisher’s designer, how involved were you during the creative process for your cover?
How did you feel when you got your first sale?
What kinds of social media [twitter, facebook, webpage, blog, writing forums] are you involved with trying to garner attention for your book(s)?
Besides Amazon, are there any other sites where your books are for sale?
What’s next for you?
I am, at the moment, working on a murder-mystery with another writer. It’s very exciting to branch out into a whole new genre. I am also considering writing a sequel to ‘Swedish for Beginners’, as so many of my readers have asked me to.
