S. M. Pace lives in the wilds of Central Virginia, with her husband (bear), son (bunny) and a pond full of fish (sometimes). When she’s not writing, she loves crafts, sewing and hiking. She is the author of two books in the Threads of Magic series, Shadow of the Wolf and Wings of the Butterfly.
Q- Do you proofread/edit all your own books or do you get someone to do that for you?
Q- What would you say are the main advantages and disadvantages of self-publishing against being published or the other way around?
By the same token, I have no help. I have to take on all the marketing for my book, something I still don’t know a lot about. I have to front the cost for self-publishing, money I know I may not get back. It’s all on me, which does make me nervous sometimes.
Q- Do you think that giving books away free works and why?
For that reason I think it works. I think people are more willing to pay when they know what they’re getting. If my writing doesn’t captivate them enough to want to purchase my longer works, the problem is my writing, not my giving some of it away.
Q- What part of your writing time do you devote to marketing your book?
My big future project is my Patreon. Once I can generate more interest in my free work, I plan to use a Patreon page to release chapters early to supporters, along with other goodies.
