I am an older young writer, though to be honest I have been writing my entire life. I have just hidden most of my work out of the fear of not being read. Ironic, isn’t it? Having published my first book, Antares Rising, through a hybrid model publisher I am working on several other projects and considering my next move. This is one of them, reaching out to you, anyone actually reading this blog.
The last year was a tough one, especially when trying to figure out how to promote a newly printed book. I am sure we have all had different experiences of the year 2020. Mine started with a lot of family time; time I would not give back, but it ended with the passing of my father. He helped me to do the final edit on my first work after the mess I had allowed to go to the printer was in proof.
Currently, my next manuscript sits with a professional editor. I hope she doesn’t get too bad a headache with it. My father told me that “A good editor is a writer’s best friend,” and I can believe that. So, on the advice of one of my parent’s deepest friends, I am trying to make a good friend.
If you are looking into this blog to find advice on writing, I will attempt to impart the minor knowledge I have been given by the people that are smarter than me. So, stay tuned as we try a journey through the Universe I have created.
