I started this post on January 9, and just found it floundering in my drafts. “Hey” I said, “you need to finish this.” “No wonder your followers haven’t heard from you in a while.” Plus, I’ve been stuck for a post idea, so, here ya go.
Back in October I decided to change course in my writing, and put my novel on hold. I like to tell stories, so I decided to type up some of them and do a memoir, instead. I’ve been working on putting a lot of them down and have about twenty of them ready for editing and formatting. I keep adding stories and adding stories, and I’m not sure that it’s not too many for one book. As I’ve been writing them down, I’ve discovered a pattern; they either talk about work or camping. I’ve about decided to write two memoirs, one for each topic.
I have been looking into Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) to self publish. I think this is a good way to get my foot in the door and start with a small project, before publishing a larger work, such as my novel.
My next step is to download the formatting/ publishing software, create a cover, set up my Broken Anvil Publishing LLC, create a logo and set up a bank account for the LLC. I’m still hoping to have the first book out by my birthday, April 18, and we’ll see how it goes from there.
Big THANK YOU to all of my followers. A a huge WELCOME to my new followers. I hope to keep rambling and have you enjoy what I write.
