Drum roll please

Well, I did it! I finally finished the editing process for Sins of the Father. I’ve vowed that I won’t look at it again and sent it off to the publisher πŸ™‚ It was a bit of an anti-climax really…all that stress for the past few months. I should have at least earned a sound effect when it came to the end!

It’s funny though I was talking to someone about it the other day and as soon as they heard the words self-published I saw their eyes glaze over. It’s like I can’t class myself as a novelist/author because I haven’t done it ‘right’.

Do you find that, the occasional embarrassment you feel at saying you’re a writer? I’m a bit of a sci-fi geek (read superman comics in my youth) and I find the looks I get from admitting that are just as bad as when I tell people I’m… dare I say it… a writer! Some people just don’t understand.

Anyway…hooray I did it! Now on to the next, which I’m sure you’ll read plenty about in the months to come πŸ™‚

As always, thanks for reading
Until next time

I’m totally down with self-publishing. Look at what happened with the music industry; technology changes have pretty much made the labels obsolete. Record labels (or publishers) now seem almost like code for the consumer: it already has somebody else’s seal of approval.

    Thanks for the feedback – I appreciate it. I have to admit, it wasn’t until I read further into the comment that I understood what being ‘down’ with something meant! That’s very British of me isn’t it?! πŸ™‚

I'd love to hear from you.
