This was my first book on Amazon. When I put Truth and Fiction in Ashevegas together, I was trying to learn how self-publishing worked. I wanted to understand how to get a book on Amazon. I learn best by doing, so I put this small book together and started the process. It didn’t take long to get it uploaded and approved; the turnaround time was shorter than I expected.
This one was available as an eBook and as a print book. When I held a copy of this book in my hands for the first time, it was an amazing feeling! I felt on top of the world.
It was also a thrill to see it on Amazon. I was a published author on Amazon! Woohoo!

I submitted a story to an anthology of spooky stories recently. The decisions won’t be announced until later this year, but I haven’t submitted to a collection like that since…ummm, I think it was 1991 and I typed my submission on a typewriter?!
I drafted a non-fiction book proposal targeted at a specific publishing house and sent it in last month. I should hear back on that around August.
Last but not least, I am working on a fiction book that I would like to be able to share with agents by my birthday.
Why now? What’s different about 2019? I’ve been a fan of self-publishing for years.
I’d like to work with a great publisher because I have accepted that I am lousy at many aspects of self-publishing, like creating covers. I need editors. I need someone plugged into a big email list of readers. I could go on, but writing is my jam…the rest of it, well, I could use help. I need people for that!
In 2019, I’m trying to find “my people.” Somewhere out there is a team ready to help work some book magic with me. This is my year!
C’mon in. My site is brand-spankin’ new, but I’m glad to have you here.
I have stories in the works and stories for sale on Amazon, and I’m tickled pink to share my words with the world.
I’m excited to launch this new site for my books. Please join my email list to keep up with the latest and greatest happenings!
