Today is the big day!  My book is ready!

As many of you know I’ve been writing for some time.  I’ve pursued the traditional route of submitting to publishers and skirting the self publishing platform. At the beginning of this year,  I made the decision that if I had not had any success with submissions by May,  then I would pursue the self publishing path.

It was either go self publishing or quit writing.  I actually debated that for several months last year. Through some personal issues, marital crisis, and realization of certain business arrangements,  I realized that I had been at this for a long time   – A very long time.  As my mother used to say – either S*** or get off the pot.  Crude, but accurate.

I did a lot of soul searching, evaluating my manuscripts, evaluating the amassed volumes of written material that I have and the lack of success in publication to come to the culmination that I needed to make a decision to either accept this as an obsessive hobby, or do something with it.

Here’s a partial list of projects that I have in various stages of completion. Some are completed and those have been submitted to publishers over time. C denotes a completed manuscript.

And yet, this is still only a partial list.

There was no way that I could walk away from this  burning passion within me to write the stories that plague my mind.  It’s time to get them out!  Having said that,  Eclectic Bard Books has given me that opportunity to step across that threshold.

I know, blah blah blah. . . . that’s not why you came here today.
