The only reason I have thought of self-publishing is because my first novel did have some avid fans. They were genuinely interested in hearing about the further fate of my protagonist, Joan. I already had my idea for the second manuscript, and originally it did not include Joan, but then I realized I could very easily fit Joan into the puzzle. The story is not a sequel; it stands alone, but those who read it will know what happens with Joan’s life. Ten years later, however, with no publisher in sight, I guess that knowledge stays with me.
