Revisiting over and over again, dotting all the i’s and crossing all the t’s, all in an effort to make sure I don’t screw the pooch at my first time at bat.
What the hell am I talking about?
“Spirit of the Dead”, my novella about the village of Carson’s Mill in southern Rhode Island, and also my first attempt at self publishing my own work, that’s what.
The writing journey has been an evolutionary one, of learning so much that, as a reader, I’d never even considered, and my next lesson will be to try publishing a work of my own. I’m reading, researching, and preparing to best learn about my options, and I think I want to go with Lulu.com, having had very positive experiences with the work I’ve had them do thus far.
I’m planning a release date of Halloween Day, just because it seems so fitting. Barring any unforeseen issues, I’ll be tackling the hardest part of all between now and then.
Marketing is not my forte, but it’s a necessary evil I have to accept.
