As a lifelong reader and writer, I always assumed I would be a published author. Luckily, I sold my first short story, then my first article. It took twenty years before a small press publisher, Advance Books, accepted and published my novel Potter’s Field.
Work was demanding, and I relaxed and just wrote for my own selfish satisfaction and to maintain my sanity. I hoped there would come a time in my life when I could focus on editing and looking for a publisher for some of the novels filling my closet. A friend, Pat Gentry, in my local writer’s group dared all the members to publish something on the internet. I put up the novel I had created in NaNoWriMo, Killing the Darlings, and became hooked. I now have ten books posted and am wondering how to sell them and which book to add next.
Now that I have conquered writing them, editing them, publishing them — the next dream is to sell them.
(Signed up for this today, 9/13/16, so if you buy one of my books here, I’ll probably make a penny more.)
