The good news is that – recently I took the plunge and did a final editing to my most recent stories and uploaded them onto Amazon Kindle for the whole world to see.
The bad news is that – recently I took the plunge and did a final editing to my most recent stories and uploaded them onto Amazon Kindle for the whole world to see.
If you’ll permit me just a tiny little bit of shameless self-promotion…
*I’ve since converted the above books into one and published one more (30/07/13)
**I’ve since turned the two books into three, did a bit more editing, but they’re more or less the same (23/01/14)
*** I’ve since moved my writing from Kindle onto this website so the links above won’t be working (12/03/15)
Yes, of course I am still terrified of bad reviews and not everyone liking me, but in forcing myself to acknowledge that mixed opinion is simply a fact of life, at least now I can say that my writing is finally “out there”.
As for the actual books, the stories themselves, they are a crystallization of ideas which I’ve had bouncing around in my noggin for quite some time, and mostly a simple experimentation of my own writing style; as in, what suits me, and how I “fit in” with everyone else.
Most of all, I wanted to put something out there that is my own creation – but hopefully not quite in the Frankenstein sense, where it goes on a major rampage (unless I wrote something very formidable…). I just wanted to tell a story, or two, or more and see how they do on their own.
A toast – to the not-total-failure of my first attempt at self-publication. Oh and enjoy. If you can!
