I have gone around and around about how to write this post. I have rewritten it, changed the voice, deleted the entire file, pulled the file back out of my trash bin, and then rewritten it again. I don’t want to sound like I’m an expert. I don’t want to sound whiny. I’ve decided I’m just going with this revision, no matter what happens.
As of the end of May, I will no longer be able to say I am a teacher. I am taking a year off. I have been working at this writing thing for awhile now. I have 5 full length novels written, 1 screenplay written, and 3 more books in the works.
There are really three different ways to go about publishing nowadays: traditional publishing, self publishing, independent publishing. I have done a lot of research into the three of them. I have talked to a lot of people in the business. The decisions I’ve made are not for everyone. Heck, I don’t even know if they’re truly best for me. But they’re my decisions. Wish me the best.
This summer is going to be HUGE.
My book, 30 Days Without Wings, which is a middle grades fantasy story about a faerie who takes a BIG risk to try and cope with a devastating heartache, is available for preorder on ebook right now with Barnes and Noble and Amazon. It’s independently published, my choice. It got great reviews from the people who had a chance to join my facebook page or follow it on wattpad while it was free. It already has orders for its May 1 release.
My book, Breaking Eselda, which is a young adult fantasy story about a Princess who is taking the throne of her Kingdom during a time of terrible turmoil, is available on lulu.com right now! It’s self published, my choice. It has great reviews from beta readers and already has orders, even though it went live only tonight.
After this summer, things are going to be BUSY.
I’m going to do more writing.
I’m going to do more reading.
I’m going to do more editing.
I’m going to do more blogging.
Thanks for finding me here. Thanks for sticking with me when things got quiet. Thanks for the support.
This journey isn’t over. So thanks, in advance, for all the support yet to come.
If you check out the book(s), I hope you’ll give ‘em a review.
