    First Novel Is Done.

    Discussion in 'Success Stories' started by Cave Troll, Jan 14, 2017.

    I epubbed my first installment of my 2 part series Renegade: Retaliation. Though I know
    you won't read it, I just thought I would put it out there. Having said that if you have something
    that I can read then PM me (better if it is on Kindle :p ). I know I can still hold the "Worst Writer"
    title here. :D Though I will and have been looking for others stuff to support and review. :)

    I'm happy to support my fellow writers.

    Anything you can read? Only in a VERY different genre. Through Time to London is on Amazon kindle, and I'm having a 99p deal next week to kick-start my marketing campaign for 2017.

    Congratulations, and I just bought it. Best case, I get to be one of the first to read the next great author. Worst case, I dropped a small amount of money into a decent guy's wallet. Either way, it's not a loss.

    Hey, you've managed to not only complete one of your writings, but e-published it too. That's more than what many other fellow writers could say. Better yet, at least this isn't an example you:



    Congrats. You have also successfully managed to inspire several others to actually finish their work and do the same. Now I must continue writing!

    Congratulations and keep going. I have read no part of your work that I remember but I can say from past experience that it probably sucks and that has nothing to do with you personally. I had a publisher once tell me that "Anything spent on a first novel is good money down a rat hole." Most people don't turn out anything worth reading until they have three or four novels under their belt. I wish you every success with this book but if it doesn't live up to your expectations, don't stop writing. I've finished twelve and the jury is still out about if they're any good or not. Good luck.

    @exweedfarmer that is quite an accomplishment having a dozen novels out there.:)
    Perhaps the right audience hasn't found your work yet.

    Lord knows from what I have seen here, is ten fold better than stuff I see pubbed on
    amazon. Well at least that is my consensus. Thanks, and good luck to you as well. :)
