Honestly, business has been a little slow lately and with summer coming on and those hot, humid days, I decided to create a new branch for my business. In addition to the services I now offer, I have decided to write a novel.
I know this is a stretch from what I normally do, but I’ve always had a penchant for writing. I continue to do resume packages, training manuals, product descriptions, etc, but I wanted to try something different to augment my income.
I actually wrote this story several years ago, when I worked as a temp. If you’ve ever worked as a temp, you know that you are not always included in certain activities and events and sometimes find yourself alone at lunch.
I grabbed a notebook and started getting creative. I wrote during my lunch hour for 4 months. Then I put the notebook away and went on to do other things. Back in December, I wanted to do something different with my business and thought about the notebook.
One snowy day, I took it out and re-read it. I needed to tweak the story a bit and correct some of the errors, but it was almost ready to go. Not trusting myself to find my own errors, I sent it to a copy editor. She suggested a few corrections and I made them.
I was then faced with the prospect of finding a literary agent or publisher. I sent out many query letters, but no one wanted to publish this great work of art?!, so I looked into e-publishing. I finally settled on Book Baby and on May 1st, my e-book, “Everyone Evelon” was published.
I am so excited to share this news with all of you. It is fiction. I spoke about God in it, so it is listed as Christian fiction with a subcategory of romance. It’s a realistic look at young people, young love, career aspirations, and life’s choices.
