Today, I made a decision. I am a writer and a literary agent who for the last twelve years has tried everything under the sun to get traditionally published. However, the time has come to realize that may never happen. I know there are so many of you out there that feel the same way butÖas you know something better has come along - Independent Publishing. I have several books that have been successfully published this way.
Before I go on I need to tell you something very very personal about myselfÖI canít edit.Please read what I have to say because for the next six months, come rain or come shine, I will be trying to write a blog that makes sense.
Please donít comment on my grammar, I pay editors to do that. I kind of remember having been taught that but at that time in my life all I seemed to care about was what I was going to do that weekend. So, you might want to think back to when you learned grammar and remember what you were doing. I had great weekends and bad grades.
I never flunked a subject but I also didnít get Aís. Somehow I survived.The good news is I love writing and everything about it. I am sick of hearing my own voice,and realize my husband probably is too. Thatís why today I am talking to you and I really hope youíre listeningÖ if youíre not I guess Iíll be talking to myself. Then again thatís nothing Iím not used to. So please follow my blog and let me let me know what your feelings are about writing, getting published and becoming famous. I promise I will listen!
Tomorrow - How I survive in the world of writing.
