Hallo, A good day to all the aspiring writers out there. I have a quick question for the people in this group. First of all, I am originally from Greece, living in Berlin as a nurse in order to make a living. Meanwhile, I have already written a complete science-fiction novel, which has been around my head for a long time (in English). Having no idea about suitable publishers, I read a lot of articles on self-publishing. But everything I read till now talks about creating a suitable network, being really patient and in general give up a lot of your time to promote your book. I don't want to sound like I don't care for my book or its publication, but I have to work full time, without a chance of a sabbatical or just staying unemployed for a few months, so I can focus entirely on my books. My question then is this: Is there a way to self-publish your book by just posting it somewhere, hoping it will get noticed or is it better in cases like mine to just send a draft to a good publisher who will take up all the work? I am grateful for any help you can give me. Fany P.S Excuse my writing, I am really trying to improve my English at the point.
