I'm taking a course at Gotham Writers on writing the query letter. Does this sound like I am questioning my decision to self-publish In Between Goodbyes? Yes. I read a lot of agent's blogs. Granted they have a vested interest in writers not self-publishing (do the math yourself) but they all discourage self-publishing. I am looking for a publisher's view of a book that has been self-published. Does a previous self-publish entirely negate a republication by a publisher? Does a previous self-published book make a publisher look askance at a new book that they are being approached to publish? Interesting research.
