It takes more than an idea to be a writer - you must be up to date with technology and educate yourself on the industry, which is changing rapidly. This guide draws on my years of experience with the publishing industry, from my years of failed attempts to break into mainstream to my recent discoveries that lead me to e-publishing and becoming an independent author. I share tools you need, helpful guides and websites, and tips and advice beneficial to all who dream of someday becoming a published writer.
BIOGRAPHY I write because I’ve always loved to do it, and ebooks gave me an opportunity to share those stories with readers that I just couldn’t pass up. The purpose of my writing is to escape reality and experience the adventure of ordinary people dealing with extraordinary circumstances.
I write in a variety of genres because I can’t be pigeon holed into one area, and I’m many other things in addition to being an author. I work full time in professional licensing, which is great for keeping me in touch with people and reality and, in turn, inspires me to write more. I’m married and live in the woods with two parrots that keep our hearts, home, and lives filled with joy and silliness that most people find strange. I’m a book reviewer, social media rambler, and borderline introvert/extrovert whose kindred spirit, according to online quizzes, is somewhere between a Sith Inquisitor from Star Wars and Scooter from The Muppets.
