I have completed the revision process for the most part on my new Middle grade novel. I am using Word to adjust the formatting so that I am prepared to upload to Kindle Direct Publishing and any other platform I can find. I have a friend with an amazingly talented daughter who was a beta reader who is helping me to design the cover for this book. I am hoping that she will continue to work with me on other projects including my picture books. The artwork may be different then my earlier books but she is so talented and I just cannot wait to see what she can come up with next.
I plan to share my adventures and misadventures as I work to become a published author. I am choosing a difficult path by self-publishing my stories. I know I will struggle with many aspects of this process but I hope that my mistakes will help someone else navigate a little easier. I have self published two picture books through Amazon and I learned a lot along the way. I even realize that while my paperback books look great one of my ebooks could use some love. I will work on fixing the flaws and republishing it this summer as well as completing my final revisions and publishing my first Middle Grade novel. I will also start a page for the Middle Grade novel shortly so that people can discuss and share the process with me.
