"I'm seriously headed in the self-publishing direction, but find the level of what I *don't* know, or don't know how to best access (a cover artist whose work I enjoy and feel fits with my writing, the same for a copy editor),…"
I'm a Sagittarian with Venus/Mars in Scorpio & retrograde Saturn in my natal chart, so lust, bitterness, & despair look great on me. I aim for a wildly successful future as a writer and rocker while dodging the slings and arrows of my outrageous teenaged son. I enjoy comedic horror; alt rock, goth, & new wave music; and quality Belgian chocolates.

I'm unpublished, as of yet, but have a completed novel, another novel which needs revision, and a handful of short stories, all in a genre I like to call "whimsical paranormal romance, with a dash of horror." What other people like to call it, I shudder to think. :-)

It took me awhile but i wanted to personally Thank You for joining my group Blooming Late!
I took the liberty and checked out the blog listed in your profile and want to say its very well done, shows your personality and is just really a great place to hang out, you are doing a really good job and your spirit is a good example of not letting age make you give up on your dreams. I appreciate that very much! Glad to have you aboard!
Now let me fill you in a little about us here at Blooming Late-
There are many wonderful women like you here in our group from all ages, genres and levels of writing who are a real source of support,encouragement and inspiration. I hope that you will be able to make your writing home with us!
Please, when you have time let us get to know you a bit better by posting in our "To kick things off" discussion or if you don't feel like doing an extensive intro. then just say Hello" on our wall on the front page.
We have just started something new here too. We have launched our own group platform,we have our own group blog called "The Blooming Late Journal" which link can be found in our Discussion area if you would like to write a post in there and then plug your blog, your book and your own platform once you have them but you can write about anything anytime.
Then we have our own Twitter hashtag so we can talk to each other in there as well as make sure to re-tweet each others blog posts and important links, etc. It is #BLWriters - just add it to any of your tweets so the group can see them by looking for the hashtag.
And best of all, we have our own Facebook Fanpage under "Blooming Late Authors", please LIKE the page and then feel free to do your plugging in there as well as put things in there that you may find useful or fun for the group to see.
We would like it also, if as time allows, you would "friend" everyone in the group in here as well as in Facebook and Twitter so that our groups publicity potential is maximized for all the writing work we do and is seen out there on the net.
We also have a PAGES section to the left of the group wall where you can list your great blog as well as your FB/Twitter handles if you have them (which I would ask on the latter, if you could get that up right away so that everyone could connect with you), among other things like your birthday etc.
We also have useful DISCUSSION areas that might be a help to your writing. You can choose to follow as many or as little Discussions as will interest and help you,we don't have any requirements on how much anyone participates but I would ask if you will set your settings in here to recieve the group emails so that you can be kept up on anything important in the group as a whole. On average I only email the entire group once a month.
Also, if there's anything I can personally do, I'll be happy to help with anything you may need.
