Caroline Edralin

Biography

I am a passionate dreamer. I create stories in my mind that help motivate me to look at life in a more positive way. Dreaming is my outlet for when the going gets tough.

I believe that God has given me talents which were untapped and unused all my adult life. Then I finally invested the time to write and this paved the way for me to finally share my natural abilities to society.

I have been a Registered Nurse for two decades and it’s not something I love doing, but it has kept me comfortable in life so I have stuck with it. Becoming a writer is a dream come true for me. I have stories in my mind waiting to be expressed. I ignored that nagging pressure to write but my dreams and imaginations won out. I realized that, for the first time in my life, I am doing something I love, something I care deeply about, and something I have longed for all my life.

Like any other writer, I devote a lot of time and effort to create a literary masterpiece. I feel a variety of sentiments as I work on my story and I want people to feel that same fun, excitement and intensity of emotions I felt while writing my story. I thought this experience is worth sharing with people.

As I indulged myself in writing, it became clear to me that this is a journey I would like to take, an adventure I want to remember, an experience like I’ve never had and an accomplishment of my lifetime. It is a legacy I would like to leave behind.

Smashwords Interview

) If you’re stuck on an island, what three books do you have to have with you?
The Bible (yes, I’m a Christian), a blank notebook (so I could write stories about my adventures on the island) and a book on how to survive being stuck on an island.
Did you self publish your book or was it professionally published? What was that experience like?
I did a lot of reading about traditional publishing and self-publishing, and both have advantages and disadvantages depending on how you view things on your end. Actually, I did not even try to submit my manuscript to traditional publishers; I went right ahead and published my own work after reading about self-publishing. I figured I would take my chances and just run with it the best way I could. Self-publishing is definitely a learning experience, but it is worth going through for the knowledge and experience. This is not for the weak-hearted since you have to invest in yourself to get much-needed exposure and visibility in this tightly competitive world. It involves funding your own promotion and marketing to get your word out there. It can be heart-breaking and frustrating, but in the end, your ultimate goal for writing should be your inspiration in deciding how you want your outcome to be.
