Last weekend I posted about contracting with a publisher. As with most things in life, I’m always a tad nervous about taking on something new (okay, a lot nervous). Not sure why. Just am. Silly me, I know.
In any event, as posted, I took the plunge and signed on with Creativia. So far, so good. In point of fact, pretty gosh-darn good!
After joining the Creativia Facebook team, I received numerous greetings from fellow authors. It was heartwarming to be welcomed in such a, well, welcoming manner. <LOL>
Who knows where this [new] publishing road will lead? All I know is that I’m pleased to be on it. Perhaps I won’t make much money, if any (I’m a realist), but I’m definitely looking forward to this new adventure and learning all I can along the journey.
Yes, having to make choices can be [very] scary—but there’s nothing better than feeling good about actually making them.
I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction.
So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects).
It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
