If you haven’t heard of it yet, I have to tell you, it deserves your support.
I’ve also been working, trying to fit in writing wherever, whenever I can, in between chores and errands and what-not. Am compiling the A-Z e-book, consisting of the stories I wrote during the A-Z blogging month. (Can’t believe May is over and we’re in June!)
Most of the weeding on the book is done, some stories replaced, editing in progress.
I’m aiming this as an experiment in e-book self-publishing. Since everyone seems to think it is the thing of the future, I thought it would be good idea to learn about it and what better way to learn something than do it?
I have had stories in printed books before, and perhaps will have more stuff in print one day. But e-books are fascinating, and if I’m to discuss e-book contracts and so on sometime, better figure out what it is all about.
The material is all published in some form on this blog and elsewhere, so it is not ideal for traditional publishing. But I hope it will make a good e-book.
I’m not taking any shortcuts, however. I’m polishing the pieces the best I can, with help from a few kind writer friends, and will hopefully have a cover design organized soon.
I’m not looking to make money, but knowledge is wealth, and my learning curve going into this should make it worthwhile.
Wondering what to call the book. Ideas?
Update: In the A-Z e-book, I’ve included an excerpt K for Kill, which figured in the Power of Tension Blogfest, and made it as one of the 6 finalists out of a total 48. I loved the other entries, and I’m thrilled to be on the list.
