Profile Information

Who I am:
Much of my life was spent under the assumption that the dreaded question "What do you want to be when you grow up?"meant it had to be something that fell in the 9-5 category. A steady paycheck rolling in every two weeks, staff meetings and job titles. It wasn't until the last few months of my moms life, that I realized I was sadly mistaken. What you want to be, is, well, what you want to be. Like most, I am good at several things in life. I've been promoted, gotten raises and congratulatory slaps on the back. But I didn't love any of them. Writing, however, I have always loved. The power to take a random thought, let it brew for a minute, mind spinning with possibilities as to why someone would do that, what would happen if they went here, how would they carry on if that happened. Well, that's just too tempting for me to pass up. Looking at pictures in your mind, and wondering "What if..." That is what writing is for me, playtime mixed with goals, struggle meets determination.

Amazon's KDP Select program

I was wondering if anyone else has used the Amazon KDP select program, and what your thoughts are on it currently. I have been enrolled in it for, oh, probably a year and half or so, and seen some great success with the free days promotion available through the program. But I have read a lot recently about others thinking it has run its course, and that KDP select is on its last leg. Because of some of the changes Amazon has made over the last year or so to the Amazon Affiliates program, I have…See More

Self-Publishers Anonymous

A support and informational group for people who are currently, who have in the past, or who plan to self-publish.  The aims of the group will be to swap information on all aspects of self-publishing from good editors and cover artists you've used in the past and how to make your own book trailer to swapping services (like editing) to help reduce the heavy financial burden of self-publishing.  See More

I am still on track for August, though a consultation with a lit agent has me reworking the first 50 pages. I hope to begin querying in August but I do have an eye on self publication if that does not work out. I would love to get your advice on how you tracked down an independent editor.

Hi Darian, and thanks for your comment. I am not sure that I am a "real" writer, I think that you are ahead of me on that one...I will keep trying!
