I finally finished my edits tonight. I started to spell check a little bit but I’m feeling a little overwhelmed right now, so I’m probably going to tackle that tomorrow. I’m also going to see if I can find some people who might be interested in beta reading my story for me, so that I can decided if I need to have a professional editor as well. Hopefully I’ll find some people who won’t mind too much. I can hardly believe that this process is almost over. The next part is going to be scary: formatting!

This is part two of a discussion between Joe Konrath and Barry Eisler about e-books and the self-publishing world. The first part can be found here. It’s very long but extremely informative so pace yourself. You may also want to check out today’s post about First Book. Joe has committed to donating another $500 by lowering the price of the book TRAPPED to 99 cents. If it reaches the Top 20, he will double it to $1000.

An online interview with Amanda Hocking and Barry Eisler moderated by Ted Weinstein. Definitely a must read for those who are weighing their publishing options.

Just wanted to share this post. Joe Konrath is donating $500 to First Book. Check it out!

oh, wow

Today is the day it all gets real for me. I’ve finished my novel, which I’ve tentatively titled The Lost King. I can’t believe that I’ve actually finished. I started working on this back when I was still working toward my BA at SFSU. I excited and terrified about what I am about to do next. I’ve have decided that I’m going to e-publish instead of going the traditional route. I’ll be posting through out this whole process. Cross your fingers for me.
