Some awesome news for my writing future

For anyone following my writing stories, here's an update:


  • I ran a limited run of "First Editions" of my book and sold almost forty copies. I used it to pay for an actual editor to edit the book.


  • After getting it back, I spent a week reworking the manuscript and correcting all the things I swore I'd already fixed.


  • After that, I formatted the edit onto an electronic copy and sent it to the publisher.


  • I bought a copy and verified all the changes were entered, and then shared with the guys on CPS.


  • Then the following happened:
I received an email that my first book, Dwight's Farm, has been added to such eBook sites as Ibook, Itunes, and others. I signed up for the usual agreements to royalties, etc. and now I have to sit out the waiting period for it to be formatted which should take a couple weeks. I'm so dang excited about this. This means I may actually start to make some change for all my hard work.

When this becomes public, I'll put the link here. I've never had more than a passing thought I could make money from my writing, but things are starting to look that way. Pretty awesome news.

In the time being, the publishing company I'm using is running a sale through July 15th. 20% off any order. If you're interested, the link is here... http://www.lulu.com/?cid=071111_en_email_BIG305

Get it while it's hot.
