    My day should be approaching soon, albeit it will be the self-published route. One thing I’m doing is working with an editor to help eliminate most if not all the errors that a first-time aspiring author can make.

    It looks like YA Paranormal/Time Travel/First Kiss romance novel, is going to be “downgraded” to a MG [Mid-Grade chapter book, ages 8-12]. This could become advantageous since the “competition” should be less for this age group.

    Continued $ucce$$ in all of your future endeavors.

    Thanks for your reply.
    If you the time I would appreciate some feedback on the snippets I’ve posted on the blog portion of my website.
    Since some people prefer other blog sites, I’ve duplicated it on
    it is also on and
    The reason for this duplication is the opportunity to increase the size of my potential audience with the least amount of effort.I write it once and then copy/paste it elsewhere.
