I have a confession to make: I love Stephen King's works. I am completely biased in everything involving him. From the great works like The Stand to the less notable novels like The Tommyknockers, I have an appreciation for them all. And IT is no exception. While I have my issues with some parts of the novel, I would still consider IT to be in the top three books he has ever written.
(From here on out, be warned: there are spoilers for both the movie and the book.)
That's a good question, isn't it? Why, when there are so many publishing companies and agents out there, would one want to self-publish? Surely one of those entities would be able to help a potential writer get published in the first place. It's happened before.
Indeed it has, but not to me and neither to my fellows at Starving Writers Guild. For years we have attempted to find a willing agent to at least consider our work, but to no avail. I have sent out hundreds of query letters, hoping to at least hear some feedback from someone about the story, if nothing else. But in the totality of all I sent out, I can count on one hand the amount of times that someone responded with a personal email, rather than an automated response.
