In the Home Stretch

It’s been a few years that I’ve been working on my novel. OK, well maybe more than a few, but I’ve finally made it to the home stretch. I am in the editing stage. A big part of making it here has been the support of the wonderful ladies of the writing group I’m a part of that we call FLAWS. They have provided me with encouragement, support, and accountability. They deserve much credit for me getting here.

So, because I am getting close to the book being done, I have been reading about publishing options, and all the things an author can do to make their book a success. In light of the things that I’ve learned. I have made some changes. The first thing I did was resurrect this blog from hibernation. You may have noticed the second thing I did, which was to change all my profile pictures on social media to a professional looking head shots. I also changed any banner pictures to original photos, so I’m not using someone else’s photo from google. I have started using twitter a lot more to connect to other authors, editors, and publishers and limited myself to writing related posts on that site. Finally, just yesterday, I launched my author page on Facebook. You can follow it at this link.

The next steps are getting you interested in reading my book. I will not only be keeping you apprised of any progress I make toward getting my book published, but also offer you some sneak peaks into the characters and settings of my book. I always love to hear feedback on what I’m doing, so don’t be shy!

So without further ado. Here is my ‘elevator pitch’ (what you would say if you found yourself in an elevator with your dream publisher) of “Lost in the Land of the Midnight Sun”

“A group of religious refugees are living in a dystopian society where the New Testament has been lost, and they have only the Old Testament to guide them.”
