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
