the journey of a budding author

That book…


Well, I think I can see the end of the tunnel  . . . my opus is out there for its final edit. (I hope) The cover is being designed. It feels like it is finally getting somewhere. I have called it ‘Every Hidden Thing’


Author: booksdefineme

I have always been surrounded by books. My parents had books, books and more books. I haunted the library as a child and when I grew up I worked in books shops. When I had children and they went to school I ran the school library. And my husband keeps on telling me there are too many books in the house. They somehow seem to pile up on every available surface almost of their own volition. I fight back and donate mounds of them to the local library but somehow it is a losing battle. I just find more taking their place! For the last eight years or so I have been wrestling with writing a novel and what a fierce tussle it is. I am about to publish this magnum opus in a few weeks time. I feel as I did when I gave birth to my children; nervous but excited!

  1. Congratulations on your progress! My book is being edited at this time, too – my title is “Solitary Desire – One Woman’s Journey to France.” Best of luck with yours!

  2. Congrats..I wrote three books last year. I need to market better.

    • Good for you keep writing! I’ve been looking at various possiblities for e-book publishing one is called Smashwords and the other is a site that helps you market your work it’s called Duolit! All the best, Jackie!
