After years of wondering if I was ever going to be published, it's going to happen. Granted, it's not a paper book, and you can't sign an e-book, but this is way better than trying to find a traditional publisher, and more than likely, getting turned down.
I write in a variety of styles, and this first collection of short stories has a paranormal tale, but most of them center around revenge, or redemption. Some of these stories are semi-autobiographical; certain events and people triggered the urge to write. I changed names and details to protect the guilty.
I've written in some way, shape, or form for the past 19 years. I started out as an associate editor for a small Indiana twice-weekly newspaper, then, full of myself and my abilities, assumed one of the local papers would hire me. They didn't. I did freelance for an assortment of local publications, and continue to write a humor/general interest column for the Fort Wayne Reader.
I am also working on a novel, and plan to write and publish erotic fiction under a pen name.
I'd like to thank the hundreds of anonymous readers who first checked out my short story excerpts on www.short-fiction.co.uk. I'd also like to thank acquaintances and co-workers who read my stories and offered feedback. I have no editor, no proofreader or marketing person, so I am doing it all myself, except for the cover art.
I hope this works out for me. E-publishing may give me that nudge I need to really write.
