    Red face Me again, the happy hiker

    Nice to be here and see some familiar names and postings...hi everyone! My big news is that I finally finished the novel I've been working on for 2.5 years and am editing the work, getting it ready for auditions with agents. Just amazing...I'm even still liking it. Please wish me luck, been the culmination of my writing career to write a full-length work, so I'm joyous and doing the happy dance.

    Wow! Amazing. Let us know when it is published! Hopefully some of us will even buy it and the rest of us will get it from the library. What is it about?

    Thanks, everyone! It is exciting, though a bunch of works lies ahead with the editing and the marketing. Right now I'm keeping the topic under wraps until its published...but if you've a curious, adventuresome mind, I'm hoping you'll like it. My writing group calls it 'lush and bold.' I call it a huge job I never thought I'd finish--but with their encouragement, I did!

    Can you tell us what kind of novel it is? I mean drama, historical, etc. Would love to know a bit more.

    Congratulations on finishing the novel! Keep us posted as to the progress on getting it published. Yes, as Kally said, can't you at least give us a few hints?

    Congratulations Happy Hiker ..... from living with an author as she birthed a few I have seen what an adventure it is... writing being just the core of many facets to get done.
    There have been many articles about self publishing and electronic book reader direct by author listings revolutionising publishing business of late. I have been forwarding to a friend who is near the end of a marathon to get her book edited. Not sure if it supportive or not to her at this late stage for me to be sending her alt distribution structures??
    Evidently a day of research reports and I cannot structure a sentence...
