Welcome!

I know you’re new to this blogspot, because so am I! I really wanted to start a blog about the book I wrote in a month. I did this with some Facebook friends for the “NaNoWriteMo” challenge, based on a book about writing books in a month. I actually did complete my entire book of 50,000+ words in the month of January, 2009.

Have I mentioned that I am a homeschooling mom of three? I’ve always wanted to write a book. I’ve probably started at least six books, but they’ve never taken off because I just don’t make it a priority. This challenge was just what I needed to keep the creative juices flowing.

I’m also one of those obnoxious writers who believes that once the words hit the page, they need little, if any, editing. I’m currently in the process of trying to find a publisher for my book. At some point, I am fully aware that this will entail having an editor EDIT my book. For now, I just want some of my friends/family on Facebook to be able to see what I’ve written and give me some encouragement.

I’m hoping to post the first couple of chapters on here if I can cut and paste them on. Please feel free to read them, then either: 1) Beg me to read more, because it is just such an awesome book, or 2) Let me know in the nicest way possible that it is not something you are interested in reading because you’re not into supernatural fiction, etc.

I hope to get some followers on here so that I can show publishers that there is a market for this kind of fiction. I believe my book has an important message but I know it doesn’t fall into any typical category. I hope you enjoy it!

One thought on “Welcome!

  1. I realize I'm a latecomer to your book posts, but better late that never, right? I just read the first chapter and I LOVE IT. I can't wait to read more. (I should get back to work, but I'm sure I'll be sneaking in readings here and there until I'm all caught up.)I earned a bachelor's degree in English, and I homeschooled my two sons for 4 years (grades 2-6) so I believe I'm qualified to say that your story is good. I was intrigued and drawn into the story immediately. Heather Rocks!!
