Hi! I am afraid I am slow this month. I am doing NaNoWriMo and so it is a hectic month. I'm glad to meet you here. Here is my Goodreads Author Page. I have published my first novel An Unlikely Arrangement this past August. I'm very excited about the reviews I have gotten and how well it is doing. You can find the Kindle version here An Unlikely Arrangement Kindle Version. You can buy it from my website www.pattywiseman.com or Amazon in regular form too. I am on Facebook and Twitter, too.Thanks for sharing! Happy Writing! Patty
I've just been writing one novel after the other, but since I had the first novel I wrote in English professionaly edited, I decided to send out queries. After receiving only rejections, and reading up on self-publishing, I decided to give that a try before giving up.
First on Smashwords, then on Amazon, I created a website, opened a twitter account (next to my existing Facebook) and am working on a trailer with a friend of mine. After all that's done I end with my efforts of promoting "Liberty Taken" and dive into "Eagle in Flight" (a novel I'm translating and rewriting at the same time).
I just hope that over time, people will find my novel, read it and leave me some feedback. Good or bad.
As for you, Gina. A small publishing house is already so much more than I've been able to accomplish. I still think it's awesome and I wish you all the best.
It's raining here, but that's allright. Gives me more time to write. Take care.
Thank you for welcoming me to Book Blogs. I do the writing thing in addition to living my life--having a mostly quiet career, enjoying my family, taking some vacations. I do a lot of technical writing for my job, so some of the hurdles beginning writers are talking about in the blogs are something I remember from a long time ago.
I have a mostly abandoned political blog that also has some personal stories on it too. I wrote a nice little piece on Thanksgiving 2007. Maybe I should bring it back to life. I'm having more fun just commenting on other folks' blogs.
Tomorrow I'm going to drop by some local book stores and put a few copies of Camp Letters: 1942 - 1945 out. One store, Majerek's Gift Shoppe and Reader's World in Niles, MI just put me on their Local Authors shelf. They have a standard consignment agreement. Maybe I'll sell a few copies to local Christmas shoppers. The personal memoir market is pretty crowded, so I keep my expectations realistic.
Hi Georgina, thanks for welcoming me to Book Blogs. I'm now following your blog and I've liked your page on FB. I was very interested to see your support for insecure writers because I'm in the process of writing a book about how to boost your confidence as a writer, so I'll visit your support group for inspiration! If you'd like to follow my blog it's http://www.writingnetwork.co.uk and I also have a Facebook page for Dormouse Press at www.facebook.com/dormousepress. Have a great weekend!
HI Georgina, Thanks for the nice welcome. I think it is interesting that you are interested in the paranormal even though you have a scientific background. Mind you, hospitals can be very creepy places with what seems like lots of lost or tortured souls wandering around abandoned wards. I remember a few experiences of my own, whilst working for a few years as a student nurse. Most spine tingling moments ever....
My own interest in books is more historical fiction and murder mysteries, particularly Scandi fiction.... and of course, my own meanderings of literature which probably make sense only to myself!!! I will stop by your site.
Thanks for the welcome, I read some paranormal fiction. I love the Karen Chance Cassandra Palmer series, but to name a favorite book is hard for me to pick just one. I read a lot of young adult literature and post about it on my my blog Little Library Muse. I am a new follower to your blog under the name Cricket, thanks again for the warm welcome.
Thanks so much for the blog follow, Gina, and the kind words. I am following your blog - love it! It's sure to be a favorite of mine. I've being seeing lots of people add Perpetual Night to their TBR lists on Goodreads! Congratulations! I can't wait to read it.
Thank you for the welcome. I love the paranormal, so we do have that in common. I have written 4 paranormal novels so far (none of which have been published yet), but I have lots of fun writing them anyway ;)
I have to admit I am a fairly inconsistent blogger and don't see a lot of improvement in that area anytime soon, but do enjoy the blogging that I do.
Thank you for the email; it's nice to meet you. I am most interested in military history books. To be honest, my wife is more into the 'paranormal' books than I am, though your book sounds interesting. I'd be happy to follow your blog and thank you for following mine. I agree-this is a great site.
Thanks for the welcome! I am blogger at heart, love the amazing blogs I come across. I review FF stories and books for a few site. I love paranormal romance, completely addicted. This is such a great site to find authors and blogs that fill my heart with the genres that I love!
