I got so tired of getting rejection letters that I decided to go ahead and self publish my next novel The Yellow Rose.
Even after you've got a book out there it's not always easy to get the second one published.
I think of myself as a novelist. I've been told by many people that they've enjoyed my books. That encourages me. Even if two people read my book and like it, that encourages me to keep on writing even if it's for just those two people.
I will not allow the publishing houses to stop me from writing and as long as there are people to read my books I will always write.
This is the second book that's published by iuniverse and to tell you the truth, the fact that it never goes out of print I sell more over time with them than with a regular publisher. I am a very patient person, thank God for that.
I have gone into book stores and picked up books only to put them down and not buy them, but still they are there. That may happen to my books but as with others, someone will love my writing and buy my books.
You took the time to visit my website and read my bio, somehow I think you will like reading my novels.
love to all.
As of July 1,08 Angel's Paradise is in paperback for $6.95 I think.
