Hello everyone. After two years of climbing that steep mountain, I finally got my first novel (TAINTED HERO) published. Hard journey, but there's something special about seeing your story released by a publisher and appearing on amazon and BN.com. Then the real work begins. Writing the second, and the third, and etc. Did I mention the promotion part. Wow. I had no idea what was involved. The writing is my new mistress, but the promotion stuff consumes most of my time. Glad to join the community. Well be glad to share what I've learned. Course, each person's path is different, but I'll be glad to offer my views and what I've learned to the community.
