Writing a New Novel

I've always been a big fan of NaNoWriMo and admired those who took to the challenge. I never did because November never seemed like a good time to embark on something like--the holidays and shopping and family trips and all that. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)

Anyway, I'm starting work on a new novel and since tomorrow is Aug 1st I thought let's see if I can give this a go. I've got all my preliminary planning…

Jed, are you secretly George Costanza? (relax it's just a Seinfeld joke...)

Thank you David! Appreciated!

Hi David,

My novel was accepted by a small publisher but I've decided to go Indie.  I've been advised to first upload on Create Space for paper & then they will upload onto Kindle for $69.  Does this make sense?  Also do you know of any free-lance editors in the Southern NH/ Eastern MA area?  I also am looking for a formatter to help upload all to Create Space.  My son, an art school grad, is doing cover.  Any info you have would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.  Best,  Jed Power  jedpower@verizon.net

Mr. Delee, 

Just wondering where in NH you are?

I have a home in Hampton Beach where my crime novels take place.

Best,

Jed Power
