In the beginning...

... there were ideas.  Lots of ideas, and mostly incoherent.  I still have a notebook stuffed in a dresser drawer full of ideas I jotted down for stories 5+ years ago, some of which I don't even understand anymore and all of which went nowhere.

Except for two.  One I turned into a short story for a writing class I took at Missouri State University and is now published on Kindle.  The other I wrote into a full-length novel over the course of the last few years and is also published on Kindle, and will be in print soon.

But getting to this point was anything but quick, and it wasn't exactly easy.  In my next posts I will describe the process I went through looking for agents, turning my files into Kindle-appropriate ones, and creating cover images and using CreateSpace for print publishing.  As I go through the process of marketing my writing, I will also describe that here too. 

Thanks for reading, and I look forward to discussing the ups and downs of this process with you.
