Well it's snowing in Chicago so I'm staying in and for the past few hours I have been preparing my new book "The Blood Oath" for publication. I am so excited and I hope that my readers and new readers enjoy it. It took me three months to complete and I am ready to share it with the rest of the world. I had a hard time trying to decide if I wanted to continue self-publishing or try to find an agent. But I made my decision last night and I am going to self-publish this book. However for my next novel I intend to get an agent and shop around for traditional publishers. I feel that I will be ready by that time. I am still growing as an Author and not yet confident enough in my abilities to show my work to an agent yet. But soon... Right now as I am writing this blog entry, my book "The Blood Oath" is being reviewed by my publisher and I should have this ready for purchase by tomorrow or Tuesday. I will keep you posted.
This book is very different from my last novel "A Woman Of Courage" because although it has a little romance in it, it is not a romance novel. It is a paranormal story for young adults. I have given up writing romance novels because my heart is no longer in it. But there will always be somebody in love in my novels just because that's something that I really connect with and can relate to as I'm sure a lot of other people can as well.
I am curious if all of you out there who self-publish ever see your novels actually on bookstore shelves because so far, I do not and that really
