After pushing A Pius Man here for years, you would think I would want to publish that first, no?
You see, I'm going to bounce A Pius Man off of one or two more people while I'm at it. There's a small Canadian publishing company with an editor who really wants me to submit it to her. My first agent (no contract), Joshua Getzler, wanted to use my book to graduate from his apprenticeship (but was too bogged down to follow through) now has his own agency. So I want to see what Josh wants to do, if anything, then try the other publishing company, and then self publish it. I liked Josh enough back then that I want to see if he's still interested now.
Why self-publish It Was Only On Stun then? Why not wait? Simple answer: the wait was killing me.
