I have always loved to write.
I have a 3-ring binder full of short stories I wrote, most of them from my 2nd and 3rd grade years. I was particularly motivated then, I guess.
I wrote mostly about fishing and duck hunting. Trips to Grandma and Grandpa’s house too.
As I grew older, I wrote about friends and boys.
I decided almost two years ago that I wanted to write a book. So I did.
It’s a fiction novel, based on true events. It’s called The Pact of Silence.
I’ve subtly tried to get it published; sending a query letter to several Christian editors or publishers over the past year. No luck so far.
I haven’t given up yet though.
I self-published it this year for Christmas; giving the second copy [there are only 2 copies] to my Grandma, since she’s the truth that I based the story on.
I don’t count self-publication to be the same as being really published though. Someday…
I accomplished my dream of publication last week, just in a slightly different form.
The lovely people at Digital Photography School published an article on photography that I submitted.
There was a typo in the title that happened somewhere in the process from receiving my email to them publishing it online, so I waited until it was fixed to announce it. My pride, I guess. But, now it’s fixed. There are no more typos. I can freely show it to the world [if you haven’t already read it on DPS]…
I feel like a kid on Christmas morning.
Now to baby step my way toward publishing my novel…
Anyone know anything about book publication?
