All while I held down a full-time job at Microsoft, and Raven took care of everything with the house plus full-time writing. Admittedly, I have a past life in publishing, web development and design. However, there was guerilla time management in there, along with more than a dash of persistence. My partner is encouraging me to think about making the next book I write on how we managed to write AND publish a book every two months on average. It’s beginning to look more than likely I’ll oblige him. From what I read, short kindle books for the Do It Yourself market are a good niche.
I thought I might start with a quick guide to exactly how I format styles in word (after scrivener export) to avoid tears before bedtime when I convert to kindle. With screen shots and measurements. Think that’d be interesting?

What a lovely feeling to have a new story published today. Child of Time is a novella in three parts, inspired by questions from readers who enjoyed my first novel, Library of Time. Fiction is a new departure for me and I’m enjoying the character driven story line.
This sequence started with a foundation story. One reader asked “what happened when Mira threw her brother off a cliff – how did that happen?” I asked my character, who was more than happy to tell me all about it.
“He said he could fly!” Mira said indignantly when her Gran came to find out what had happened.
And who is to say otherwise in a family with such strange and otherworldly magic? Why would she think he was exaggerating? Pushing small girls can be an unpredictable thing when they have strong magic to defend themselves. To find out what happens next, read Child of Time on paperback or kindle today.
