I’ve been a writer for as long as I can remember, but have never successfully published my work.
Well, unless you count that one contest that turned out to be a money making scam.
But, with the advent of e-publishing and the wealth of tools–not the mention the community–that is there to help writers like me, it seemed like a good time to give it a shot. This blog will serve as a way to organize my thoughts during this process, detail what I’ve learned in the hopes of helping others in the same boat as I, and to help publicize the work I produce, as I produce it.
I also think it’s important to highlight the remarkable community of Independently Published Authors that thrives on the internet. There’s a wealth of good fiction out there, and I hope to be able to introduce readers to some of it. Part of the focus of this blog is to feature and review certain indie works that I particularly enjoy.
