I started reading a new book today. In fact, my husband and I are reading it together. First one reads out loud, then the other. We like to share books this way, been doing it for years. This book is Lust, Money & Murder A series by Mike Wells, Book 1, Lust.
So far we’ve met Elaine Brogan and her parents. Elaine has always been the joy in her father’s life, a regular daddy’s little girl. Now she’s sixteen and all grown up. If you’d like to read it too, the book is available at most eBook distributors. Smashwords, Nook, and Kindle have computer programs where you can read their books online. I see it’s free on Smashwords.
If you get the book, let me know what you think of it. Just, please, don’t give away too much of the story.
To start off, I should tell you that I’ve been writing for my own enjoyment, and to share with friends, for a long time. I love getting lost in my imaginary worlds and getting to know new characters. I’ve delved into mainstream, romance, suspense, mystery, and keep on trying new genres. I think I like mystery the best. It’s also what I like to read the most.You might know!
A while back I found Smashwords.com, a self publishing eBook website. I decided to check it out. I read up on The Smashwords Style Guide and figured out how to publish three of my short stories. If you would like to check them out go to https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/care. That has been the extent of my publishing life so far.
Recently I got the bug to learn more about publishing. I wrote a mystery/detective story, which is now ready to go to a professional editor and should be ready to publish soon. I want to do both eBooks and print books. Going on this new adventure has been quite a ride. There is so much to learn about getting published. Some good, some tough to swallow. Like how stiff the competition is. There are thousands of manuscripts being submitted every week. I never knew there were so many writers out here.
I invite you to come on along with me and we’ll see what we find out there in the real world of publishing!
I welcome replies and look forward to hearing from you.
Until soon, Carol
