Going Your Own Way

At Get YA Words Out, we are strong believers in equal opportunity for AusQueerYA authors to have their voices heard. If you’ve been any where near a bookstore lately, you might have noticed a distinct lack of AusQueerYA titles crammed in next to the millions of Girl Meets Boy stories. So what’s the deal? Are AusQueerYA writers not writing good enough stories? Or is the traditional publishing world weighted heavily with heterosexual privilege? That’s a debate for another day, but stay tuned.

If you’ve made your way to this page though, you might be feeling like you’d prefer to bypass traditional publishing houses (even the Queer/Queer Friendly ones) and self-publish. That decision takes guts, and we’re here to help you through the ups and downs of doing it yourself.

OK I Published a Book, but Now What?
