The Journey From Irate Reader To Nervous Author

I guess I should explain the subtitle of this blog. In May 2014, I bought an e-book on Amazon which was, erm, less than stellar. It was, in fact, the kind of book that gives self-pubs their bad reputation. About 30 pages into it, I realized it wasn’t getting better, and I was not going to be able to finish it.

I said something to the effect of, “I could write better than this. In fact, I will!” It’s an attitude, by the way, that’s responsible for a lot of the house renovation designs in Coquitlam 🙂 .

So, three months later, I had a novel written. Then I spent four months actually getting it ready for publication. It’s surprising how much of the craft of writing doesn’t actually involve, you know, writing.

Time will tell if I become a popular author, but one thing’s for sure– I’ve got the bug.

    Ya… if I remember correctly Mr. Taylor you actually said out loud ” I could do better” and your wife (me) said “then do it!!”
    And you did! I coudn’t be more prouder or excited for you!
