My First (Self-Published) Book

So, I’ve finally done it! I’ve self-published my first book. I’ve been working on it for around two years and I’m really happy with the results. It’s a post-apocalyptic story that is divided into five books that I’m going to release over the next year. I still have some work to do on the others; but now that I’ve spent a lot of time on the first one, I’m sure that those will be a lot easier. The whole process has taught me to embrace my style of writing, not over-think it. I’ll check for grammar and spelling and a few errors and inconsistencies, but that’s about it. I can’t wait to get it out there!

    I just finished Glory Book 1 and I enjoyed it very much. It’s nicely written with a nice flow to it. Great character development as well. I found it on Amazon, free kindle books, zombies of course. I was very disappointed to get to the end of it and jump over here to your blog, only to discover that I had missed getting the 2nd book for free as well. Darn! I can’t afford to be buying books at the moment, even if it’s only a couple of bucks. But, I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed the first one.

      Hi, Mary. Thank you so much for reading my book. I’m glad you enjoyed it. 🙂 Yes, I released the second book for free for two weeks on Smashwords. I’m sorry that you missed it. But I’ve made a coupon for you so you can still download the book for free. You can do this at Just enter the coupon code LT74X when you check out. I’ve set the coupon to expire in 5 days, so I hope that’s enough time for you to get the book. I also hope you like this one as much as the first! 😀
