If you’re reading this, you might have read a book I wrote, and for that, I’m thankful. I’ve been writing for a few years now and never realized until recently that it’s not all about the books, a little self-promotion is necessary if you actually want to be successful in this endeavor. So here I am, creating a website of which I never thought I had any business doing, because let’s face it – other than Microsoft Office, I’m a complete numpty when it comes to computer programs.
I’m actually rather excited to try out this new venture. I read blogs regularly and I certainly have enough stuff rattling around in my brain to write one myself so I’m going to go for it. Maybe it’ll get traffic, maybe it won’t. I’ll probably have a good time doing it, so what the hay?
As for my books – I’ve been dabbling in a few sub-genres of Romance. I’ve heard from a few reviewers that my writing is “different” from things they’ve read before and I agree with them. I look at Wish Lists from publishers and I can honestly say I just don’t fit in with what they’re looking for. Maybe I should write a book that fits with what they want, but to be honest I wouldn’t be able to do it. I have to be me. Sarcastic, weird, quirky me. I find humor in everything and while I don’t intentionally set out to make anyone laugh, I guess it just sort of happens. Things I see, situations I’m in, people I talk to…I can’t help it. I’m an observer of everything and it comes out in my writing. Hopefully you were entertained with my books because that’s what I’m aiming for.
Me? I’m an avid reader. I read like nobody’s business. I read fast, I read anything I can get my hands on. I just love the written word so it only seemed like a natural progression to write also. Why not? I was having difficulty finding books I enjoyed reading a few years ago so I decided to write one of my own. I wasn’t going to publish it. I was just proud that I actually completed a manuscript. Someone turned me on to the world of self-publishing and I did it. It was free, the work was done, so why not? Well, ten novels down and I am hooked. I also have another book I’m working on right now that is a blast to write, so I’m sure that one should be completed sometime this fall.
So, thanks for finding me. Leave a comment if you want. Let me know what you like, what you don’t like about the my books or maybe just give me some good reading suggestions.
