  • Publishing Experience:Sixteen years ago when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, one of my first thoughts was that I wanted to write a book before I died. Ten years later I wrote "Pick Up The Broken Pieces", a Christian novel. I read about publishing and subscribed to "The Writer" Magazine, but found a vanity publisher for "free" on the internet and gave them seven-year rights to my book (Publish America) with regrets. I really didn't know what to do.

    The last four years I wrote "Scorched Family", a Christian Suspense novel. AQ taught me a lot about writing a query and publishing angles. Last week I self-published with Create Space and let Amazon send my manuscript to Kindle. As an unknown author, I decided to offer my e-book free for five days. I've had 300 downloads. I figure if I get ten good reviews from this experiment I might sell some.

    I realize there are no guarantees and a bad review changes everything. So far my friends said they couldn't put the book down.

    Whatever happens, I had fun writing it, and I'm thinking about the next novel. When I get rights back to my first book (next year) I will self-publish it also.
