Maternal Instinct publication process
Rebecca Bowyer signed with Lauren Bieker at Fine Print Literary Management in January 2017 to represent Maternal Instinct.
After strong interest from a number of large publishing houses, but no forthcoming offers, in early 2019 Bowyer made the decision to publish the novel herself under her own imprint, Story Addict Publishing.
A successful Kickstarter campaign provided the funding for professional editing, cover art, marketing and a small first print run.
