With the Internet, “The world becomes like a small village.” #quoteofwadelancaster and you can reach a large number in your target audience. However, you still have limited yourself to a small portion of what you can achieve.
I found a publisher for my novel. It is a truly convoluted tale, about a man, who meets a woman, online. His past, dreams and real world experience, the virtual reality sword and how everything ties together. Held only by the thread of hope… will they ever find the destiny of true love and happiness together as one. A vixen, a vampire, a knight, and a geek. Passions and hate mixed with an ongoing attempt to unite the two as one. A truck and travels, a home not secured. Lies and secrets and hidden agenda’s what could become of these. A monster and an angel, a beast and a saint, what a convoluted story, real and virtual can make?
I plan to write a vast amount here, in my blog. And give my view on why you should write. Write from the heart, from mind to pen. The words of your vision, to keyboard you can spell.
