In Print!!

Well, it will be by the end of the month anyway. Yes, that’s right, my book, From His Perspective will soon be available for you to read (and I’d be incredibly grateful if some of you did ;O)). After having received about 20 rejections from literary agents and because I have the patience of a gnat with ADHD I decided that I would ‘do it myself’ and publish via Amazon Direct Publishing. It doesn’t have quite the same cache as being touted by an agent as ‘the next JK Rowling’ but I am feeling pretty damned pleased with myself; if you’d have told me a year ago that I’d write a book I’d have thought you were mad!

I know I’ve been conspicuously absent just lately (I can blame that on the second book that I’m writing – this is becoming a habit!) but without the support of the blogging community I don’t think I would ever have done this. It was you guys that gave me the confidence to write and then to write from the heart and I owe all of you a huge, huge thank you for your unfailing kindness and encouragement. You’ve helped me through some very dark times and I will be eternally grateful.

    Looking forward to it. I have had three rejections so far and I am not good with it. Almost published it on Amazon this morning, but then went out cycling. Good luck and take care.

      The way I think of it is that not everyone has the capacity to see true potential ;O) I’m sure that you’ll get there Mike – are you going publisher or literary agent route?
      Thanks and you too :O) x

        I was awake and thinking about the book that I have placed on Amazon and then I thought of yours. I now that you are a good writer and am anticipating a really interesting read. I hope the journey helped.

        Ah bless you Mike, I really hope you enjoy it (reviews are a big help – hint, hint 😉). Without WP and all the wonderful people on here I don’t think I ever would have written it and it certainly motivated me to read other people’s work 😊 xx
