To be an Author

Being an INSP author is not easy. I think I said that already? Facebook decided to block sharing from third-party sites and forced anyone who wanted to share their work, or blog on Facebook to create a new page. Not every Author has a website. Many new Authors fail to see the value in an Author’s site. Here I meet other similarly minded people work on the craft of writing. I find out about new trends, publishing do’s and don’t. I find new tools or discover tools new to me. I pass on what I have learned to those who ask. I grow a circle of interest in my story sharing parts of it with others and getting many pointers on what to cut and how to polish my story to be its best.

And we share just how to deal with technology when it changes direction on us.

Fantasy Fiction Eversoul G.P.Dickerson, new, New Author

Update Eversoul.

Excuses never got me anywhere in my life. My own timetable slipped. Eversoul was supposed to be on the bookshelves already. Instead, it is still in the rewrite phase. My life has been in full gear this year boring neck-breaking speeds almost out of control. Real everyday work can be demanding. For me, it often puts my writing life into a spin and picking up only leftover time that somehow got missed. I gain a young ward in July a wonderful eight-month-old baby Girl, called Annalynn Rose. She has gracefully demanded a rebalance of my time. She is a wonderful little person and a blessing in my home.  She can have whatever she needs of my time.

This week I am off work sitting home recovering from a bad weekend with a bladder infection.  And writing the rewrite of Eversoul. I will update my site with some more goodies on the weekend, but mostly I need to finish Eversoul the Secret.

I was asked about publishing poetry. I had not included that here before, but I have a book of poetry that I published titled Miracles. Miracles is about dealing with my mother’s death.  It was also about learning how to publish on Amazon. The poems were written a few years ago, although they still strike the same feelings when I read them today. It was hard to edit the poems and work the manuscript because I had to spend so much time in those feelings again. It has not had the exposure it needs to sell any amount of copies. It was not my intention too. But, it is there and it continues to receive updates, which is one of the things I like best about E-books on Amazon! Whenever I update Miracles, those who have purchased it can get the update for free. At present, the E-book is a $2.99. If you buy the paperback you will still be eligible for a free E-book of Miracles. The paperback copy is $5.25.

Amazon is great if you just want to get published. If you really want to be an Author and write books for your audience it is a place to do that too. When you take on this task, it is not to be taken lightly. You will have to take on responsibility for the entire process. Editing, formatting,  cover design, and creation of the story or poetry too. The best part is Amazon’s KDP is free! So if you can put the rest of the process together yourself, it is a place to learn. There is a booklet that tells you how to format the manuscript to comply with Amazon’s format so it appears nice in their Kindle readers. And Fivver.com has a lot of resources to add you as well. Many services are available from editing to creating a cover and much, much more.  It is still a task worth undertaking. Go slow, get a website set up, and most important – write!
