I'm through with a project that started more than three years ago, Bum's Rush. I have confidence in the book. So why am I self publishing? Simple, I don't want the aggravation of waiting. Waiting for an agent, waiting for a publisher to listen to the agent, waiting for all the proofing, when I'm perfectly capable of doing it myself. I guess you might think I'm lazy. If that's your thinking, then, yes, I am. So I'm using Amazon, Kindle, Smashbook, and LuLu. In fact, Is out on everything but Amazon. After I proof this next copy, it should be available on Amazon. I haven't done any promotion yet. Still researching all of that. I'd be interested in any thoughts on that front.
It's nice to be back at Crimespace. I'm working on a couple projects, one is a complete change in genre, YA. I'm reading them like crazy, so I can get a feel for it. I'm also changing from writing 3rd person, the 1st person. I still use "he" and "she" and "they" and "them" once in awhile. I know if I've done it and found it, there are three dozen I didn't find. It's all a good learning process.
