My first novel, when I started writing two years ago, was “The Pendergast Prerogatives“. It soon became the first of five novels in the Pendergast series. Unfortunately, in my rush to get the novel published, I did not perform the due diligence necessary when I chose a publisher.
Yes, I chose a vanity publisher. Sadly, the publisher did nothing to help me write or sell books except ask for money. I can proudly report they got nothing from me. Also sadly, I sold no books.
Six books later, I wrote “The Alberta Connection, a Ryce Dalton novel“, and submitted the book to an online site that critiqued the first three pages. I was astounded at what I didn’t know about being an author. When I finally picked myself off the floor, I went looking on the Internet for answers. Some of those answers came from a fellow author who happens to be a friend. She was clear and to the point. I just didn’t know how to write.
I have since purchased the rights to publish “The Pendergast Prerogatives” back from the vanity publisher. For the past several months, I have been hard at work turning the novel into something I can be proud to say I am the author of. At the moment, I have rewritten the first 193 of 212 pages. I hope to have this edit completed in 10-14 days, at which time I will start at page 1 once more.
I have one book (The Alberta Connection, a Ryce Dalton novel) being published by Writer’s Edge Publishing, one book (Pegasus Rising, a Nixon French novel) in the final formatting/printing process (and should be on the shelves soon), and one book (The Dakota Connection, a Ryce Dalton novel) on my editor’s desk . The Pendergast Prerogatives will be the fourth book published by Writer’s Edge Publishing.
The Alberta Connection is available on Amazon.
