All in all self-publishing my first novel has been a humbling experience. One of the highlights derived from the process was meeting a host of professionals who helped me along the way. From Editors: Jeni Chappelle and Amber Barry, book cover designer: author Lynnette Bonner, author services: Standoutbooks, and book cover designer and formatters: Formatting Experts (who went far beyond the call of duty in making this book a reality) to Mcgully and Actress Ellen with two superb videos. It’s done! Time to move on.
Now after a few snags in the process, you can order A Gateway to Hope from bookstores and a multitude of online distributors. Mardels’s bookstore will order the book for the list price.
The last two giveaways has ended. The giveaways at bookgiveaways.net and Goodreads totaled 1225 entries with 10 winners. Hope all the winners love the story and publish a review.
Next on the agenda, I’m busy writing books two and three. Yep. As if writing book one didn’t stretch me enough, I have hopes of completing both drafts by March 2016. A standalone novel, book two will continue the hope theme begun in A Gateway to Hope. While book three is a young adult book adapted from my play Pajama Party. I’ll keep you posted.
In the future, I will update author services and blogs for booklovers and authors on my website. Hopefully the information will prove beneficial.
Thanks to everyone who made my dream of becoming a writer a reality. Be blessed and happy reading!
