I'm so excited! My book 0 to 69 in 5 Minutes has been released today. This is a bitter sweet day for me. It's been a long time coming to say I have a book out by a publisher, and it is like the beginning of my career for me.
Let me explain. I am published in ebook and have been for some time now. But my first publisher scammed me, took my money and ran. I had two books with them. After some time, I got my rights backs and placed them on Smashwords. Now, I like Smashwords, and I have nothing against self-pubbed authors. BUT, a lot of readers do, and they don't like to take a chance with their money on self-pubbed books thinking they are second-rate. So, I have two professionally edited books that had been published and were selling great, to now where they look to be self-pubbed and are not selling. It's heartbreaking to say the least.
Now, I do have two stories published with Coming Together anthologies and one did win an EPIC award this year. I'm so excited about that. Those stories are good, not second-rate at all. They are written from the heart, and I believe in them. Still, it doesn't feel the same for some reason as a book on a publisher's website. I don't know, I can't explain it. So, after a mess for the last year, I feel like today, I am starting over.
Here it is!
