Gonna Take the Plunge

Hi all! Hope your Wednesday is treating you well. Hey! Hump day!

So, tomorrow I'm going to up-load a short story to Amazon. I'm nervous. I've looked through what I'm supposed to do. Sort of took notes on things so I won't panic when I get to that moment, but probably will!

The first and only time I self-published was my Spell of the Black Unicorn book (which is going to become an ebook, eventually and I'll put that out too!), and I paid a publisher to do that for me. However, I did have to format it myself. So, I'm glad I didn't throw out the book which has instructions on how to go about this!

My short story "The Holy Devil" is something like 5 pages long. It is a vampire story. It's star vampire? Rasputin. I sent it off to a publisher for anthology, but they didn't pick it up. I'd already had in mind to self-publish it myself if they didn't. So, I'm not very upset about them not picking it up. I hope to do a few more like this in the future. In fact, I may go on to do novellas, which are partially written. I hope it works out, any way.

Meanwhile my inability to post any pictures within a post still plagues my blog. I don't know if it will continue to do this, or if something is going on behind the all mighty Oz's (blogspot's ) curtains and maybe suddenly things will straighten out. Probably mad at me for not going with the updated interface. I'm fine with what I've got, don't need an update, thank you.

So, by about this weekend I hope to announce the publication of the short story, and put in a link for those of you who might be interested.


  1. Thanks, Richard, I sure need it!

  2. Let me know how it goes. Too, there's something wrong with your comments. They're sitting on top of each other.

  3. Hi, Shelly. I couldn't upload my picture or my file. I'll leave it for now. I have no idea why, and am too frustrated to try this again today.

    Yeah, comments are screwy. What's new at Blogger?

  4. Congrats on getting it together to send the short story to Amazon! That is not only work, but scary. Looking forward to reading it when you post the link.

  5. Yes. Scarry. Difficult. Frustrating, etc.
    It is up now, but I've just dropped the price and that will take 12 hours for it to go into effect at .99
