I have a question that's probably been answered someplace, but I couldn't find it. I am starting to query agents concerning a manuscript. Also I have another manuscript that I'm considering trying self publishing through createspace and such. Would it be somehow abnormal etiquette in the writing/publishing world to do both of these simultaneously? They are both similar in genre and target audience. YA Fantasy.
One of the main reasons I want to self publish is that it was originally a piece of a much longer manuscript. I realized that as a whole the 800+ page monster would never publish. So I split it into three books (which are now all 300ish pages) and so the entire story is not told unless all 3 books are published and I don't know how to go about that. All three (Since they were part of one) are complete, though the first one is the most edited. There are three other books in the series besides the first three as well so in total it's a six book series. And it's very important to me that all six get published as they tell one overarching story.
Anyway, thank you for your time.
