I got the idea for M&M back in 2010. There was lottery fever all over Europe that autumn, yet at the same time there were photographs appearing in the papers showing hundreds of individuals standing in line for free lunches at the Bow Street mission house in Dublin. It was hard for me to make sense of it all, yet somehow I knew it was important.
Once I understood no publisher would touch me, I decided to go it alone. I am too old to sit around and wait for a letter that will never drop onto the doormat. I signed up with KDP and uploaded every completed manuscript. Then I did the same with Draft to Digital and also Smashwords. I have also used the Createspace programme to convert my files to paperback. I recently published a
small book of short stories called Coffee Tales which includes a section called Before the Lottery.
Happy Reading to you all.
