I have self published a book. I am in equal parts excited and terrified. I guess every first-time author goes through the same thing. Will people like my stories! Will people think I’m arrogant? I like my stories, my poetry, my pictures. I think many others will as well.
The road to publishing is often a winding one and it was so in my case. I’ve been writing for most of my adult life. I wrote for me. I had a lively imagination and I felt it was better than becoming a serial killer. Okay I’m not quite that creepy! But some of my stories are . . . . hahaha! I was convinced first to write a blog and when I discovered that people actually like my writing, I was emboldened. Maybe I could write a book.
So to get my toes in the water, so to speak, I started publishing by short stories on my blog. When they were well received I went to the next step. It took me several months but I published! Almost everything in this book can be found on my blog over the last three years. But it is nice to have everything in one place.
Whether you purchase copies of my book or not I will still continue to write on the blog and you are always welcome to follow me. Be well, be safe, be happy!
