Cendrine Marrouat: Why did you choose the self-publishing path?
Kimberley Johnson: We decided self-publishing was the way to go because we could keep control. Ralph Faust formatted “The Virgin Diaries” and designed the cover as well. The three of us created a book that we wanted, not what a publisher wanted us to do with it.
As any author will agree, finding an agent or a publisher to take you on when you are not already established is almost a miracle. When we decided to self publish, it was at the very beginning of this new wave. Authors now have the power to create their material at a minimal cost and be able to share it online. With social media to market the work, it was a no-brainer.
