I haven’t done any substantial writing in <gasp> about 20 months, other than some poems, blogging, and editing my work. In May 2015 we moved across country and rented a townhouse until we could find a home to buy. So, we never really got settled.
We finally moved into our new home in August this year. It took a while to get settled, and two months later, I entered my novel in Kindle Scout (during most of the month of October and some of September). I didn’t get selected for publication by Kindle, so I decided to self-publish. The book is already edited and has a cover, so why not?
I know some of you who have done this for a time must think I’m dense. Perhaps I am, but my 22-page memoir was much easier to upload to ebook than this 87,000-word novel. In addition I have the tedious print book to format.
So, I won’t be around as much until I get all this figured out, but I hope you’ll come back to see my finished product. I’m excited to hear what people think of my two flawed characters, Ava and Meg. I’m hoping to have it available by this coming weekend (if I get this formatting smoothed out). If anyone would like an Advanced Review Copy to read for review, please contact me at email@example.com.
UPDATE: The novel has now been published. You can find it here.
