Happy New Year! I owe you, my reader, an apology for dropping the ball on the novel series, Every Thing We Are. I am back on it in the new year. And I can’t wait to get back into the groove. Hope you will still read along.
As all of you must have heard December was a fantastic month for me. I published my first eBook, The Dog We Stole, on Amazon. Thej and I had planned to get it published in December, no matter what! And I am so glad he was a prick about it. Left to me, I would have dilly dallied.
I’ve been thinking of how writing fiction can pay my bills. Apparently that’s not very easily done. Publishing The Dog We Stole as an eBook was one attempt towards this goal. While I like experimenting with biographies and novels, what I really enjoy writing are short stories. Whenever I have reached out to traditional publishing houses about publishing a short story collection, I’ve been told that there is no market for short stories in English.
What I want to do in 2021 is to build my own audience. I want to start a newsletter where I will send you one of my short stories to read on the first of every month. At the end of the year, I plan to compile these short stories and publish them as a book. More on this soon.
Happy New Year!
