When I decided to write a novel, I had no idea how. I found an audio course, Fiction Writing by Ayn Rand. I listened to it once, gaining very little. Then, I wrote several stories that were first acts. I wrote for 2 years, but with many problems, until I finally went back to the cassettes and listened to them again.
This time I gained a little bit more, and I wrote for another two years, but my stories were boring, dull, awkward, inconclusive. I went back to the course, with many questions. During the 4th time my mind had developed—and I grasped the answers.
I wrote because I wanted to project young individuals, idealists, in a story with a plot that moved at a fast pace. I picked a daring subject: “Is it moral for a woman to love two men?” Then I showed an unconventional answer that most people refuse to consider, but I love.
I have earned $2.99 so far (14th July), and sold my first Kindle book, yippee!! After writing for 5 years, I have recently published my debut novel, Pearl Lover.
Well, that is the story of My start in writing. I would love to hear yours.
Well, funny thing is, I promote other authors lol. I run the Virtual Book Tour Cafe', and seldom do promotions for my own work. I do get noticed, but since November, I've not done a thing for my own books. I will start back up again, just got married, moved to a new house, lol, I'm loving life, and love helping other authors too. :) Just trying to get back into a routine. We should go on tour together at some point. What do you think?
You are very young but ambitious, a good thing. Yes, we can tour. Where would you suggest for our first stop? If you need it, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org . Are you on Facebook and Goodreads? What about KDP? Tried any promotions? Kea
I will create us a signup page :). My FB & GR is BK Walker, Twitter is bk36 or VBTCafe. I will send you an email tomorrow :). Getting ready to call it a night. YAY! Touring will be fun!!
Could not find you on Goodreads. Can you find me there? I prefer it to FB.
