So, hello. New here.
I've been scouring the internet and taking friends' advice left and right on building a presence prior to my first novel coming out. I'm self-publishing and that was a hard decision that I'll probably discuss another day. 

Moving on...

BookBlogs was one of the places that was suggested that a writer make a presence since here is a place that books are talked about. Word of mouth is the biggest seller of books and I'd like my book to sell. Why? First, because I believe I have a unique story. Second, I'd like to be able to make even a part time job of writing since it's been my dream for decades. (I get to say decades because I'm old enough for 'decades' to have true meaning.)

I've already put short stories on Amazonand then woke up to Smashwords where I've put collections of short stories to hopefully gain some attention.

I like to read and hope to be read. I'm willing to read other people's work and write reviews if asked.

She seems to have a genre specific orientation, but I will query her. Thanks.

Good luck!
