I've been so busy lately, I've hardly had time to sit and think about this blog. I just wanted to share some happy news. I received a copy of my first paperback anthology, in the mail last night, from Living Dead Press.
I appreciate every publisher that has worked with me. To see my byline on a website or in an e-book is wonderful, but there is nothing like holding, in your hand, the evidence that someone else has read your writing. I have a few more hard-copies coming my way, but the first one always seems special, doesn't it?
My wife has already hijacked the book to show off to her coworkers. I thought that was so sweet. I am lucky to have her encouragement. Of course, I am paranoid that someone is going to damage the book, but that will change with time, I'm sure. It is available in both paperback and Kindle. The details are on my publication blog. I'd also like to thank Folded Word for publishing another of my poems. It is really starting to feel like I'm not wasting my time.
I've spent much of the past week rewriting one of my favorite stories. While originally the story was a lot of fun, it now has a solid plot and characterization as well. I'm still learning the process. Every day I learn something new, about myself or about the industry, and I thank you for taking the time to journey with me. Keep writing my friends!`
