A New Direction

Work continues on my second book. Even if it does seem to go slowly. I guess you could say I have been busy doing more research type of work than writing. Plus continuing to work at State Farm which does not help my creative side:) I recently found out that my publisher will be closing their doors in September not even a year after I published my book. I have tried several times to contact them with my many questions to no avail. The most recent response only occurred after I sent them a certified letter. Still my questions were not answered and I did not receive my royalty check but I did get a very small refund that I requested. What this means for me is that I will have to republish my first book. At first I was pretty frustrated. But now I am actually looking forward to finding a new publisher and fixing the errors in my first book. It means work yes, but I am slowly getting the hang of this. I have found a publisher that is a bigger name and takes multiple manuscripts at a time. My plan is to submit my first and second books manuscripts. And to have a better publishing experience than this last one. Everything in life is a learning experience. I appreciate everyone's comments and questions. I will continue to write the second book and hope to finish is quickly. If anyone's children are interested in having me read at their school please let me know. Thank You for reading!!!
