With my second book, when the first in series was self published? It was received really well, and currently has 4.5 on amazon. Would the publisher be interested in a second in series, without the first?would they consider taking the first after it had already been self published? My problem is the second book cannot really be taken as a stand alone. I'm asking this well in advance of the story being anywhere near ready, purely because I want to give a publisher a try with this one. I never thought the first would be good enough to sell but its exceeded my wildest expectations. if I need to alter how I approach this story line in order for the publisher to take it id rather do it now than just before i press the publish button. The only reason its not 5 stars is the marketing/cover/blurb etc isnt my strong point, and however hard I tried there are a couple of spelling mistakes still present.
