Magenta Fleurs is my ninth novel or twelfth book! How did I ever get this far? Am I any good? I don’t know ask an expert. However, they don’t read Indies’s or unknown authors. They edit and read New York Times Bestseller’s right? And Booker Prize finalist’s and the long list or short list of books. What’s an author to do that doesn’t have a MFA in Writing?
Well, if you like writing and you’re a good speller with a great memory, then write a book, edit it, cover it and publish it. Be scared. Of course, you don’t want to get sued by anyone so follow the rules as best you can. No you don’t have a lawyer looking over your manuscript, therefore a bit of fear creeps in like, “Oh No!

Here is my ninth novel, and twelfth book in all, over ten years. I’m a nurse, mother, stylist and yes, a writer. After ten years I’m not perfect but I can write a paragraph in seconds and get to the point fairly quickly. I can write a book and publish it in 3-4 months. Not bad, eh? I want to go to the next step and the one after that: readers, more books, and sales.
My books are available for a summer read or perhaps a fall picnic or winter tea by the fire. Your choice, your way, right here on the net from Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Kobo, Smashwords and numerous others.
