I am so excited! I just submitted my manuscript to Create-A-Space for Knightingale. I can’t believe it’s finally in the works to getting published. As soon as it is approved I will also be submitting it for the Kindle.
I can’t begin to tell you how much of a learning experience this has been and oh, the journey just to get to this point. So much research and agony over trying to decide what is the best option out there. I didn’t even want to consider self-publishing before but after all the nightmares I have heard of how difficult or nearly impossible it is to get a publisher to even consider your book, I almost gave up. When I forced myself to start researching other routes I had to admit that self-publishing involves a lot of work but it’s not a whole lot different than what you have to put yourself through going the traditional route. The only difference really is the advance you receive from a publisher. But even then you’re lucky to get an advance large enough to cover your expenses and then you are stuck with a limited about of books to work with.
Writing is not a get-rich-quick scheme. I came into this knowing that from the beginning. All I want to do is make my stories available for others to read and if I make enough money to help pay the bills along the way then my husband will be extremely happy. But writing is only one step of the overall journey and I’ve learned that you have to put just as much effort into the distribution and marketing part as you do the writing part. But it’s a dream and every dream is worth the work because at the end of the day you can always say that you have followed your dreams and very few people in this world can say that.
“Knightingale” is the first installment of the Paranormal Fiction “Knightingale Series”
Evil has plagued this world since the dawn of creation seeking to gain control. One family was given supernatural abilities with the sole purpose of protecting the things in this world that evil must never take possession of.
Samantha Nelson knew she was cursed. She didn’t know that her unnatural ability of forcing the truth out of people was just the beginning of her curse until her family is murdered in a horrific home explosion. Six months later she finds herself face to face with a Knight Protector and her life is turned into utter chaos.
When David received his assignment on his twentieth birthday he was told that his destiny would be entwined with a woman soon to be born and that his aging would be halted. Since the moment Samantha was born, David protected her from her enemies. As every Knight before him, he does so in the shadows. But David must face the facts that something even deadlier than her enemies is occurring. No matter how much he denies it, he is falling in love with her. When her enemies begin to discover ways around his protection and murder her family he is forced to make a decision of what is more important to him; his family or his assignment. All it takes is one warning sign of danger to convince him that he simply cannot live without Samantha and he takes a leap that will change their lives forever. Their only chance of survival is to discover what Samantha’s destiny is and the journey leads them straight to the heart of the Knight family where they discover evil has infiltrated and it is up to them to stop the evil before it destroys the family and gains control of the very thing that God created the family to protect.
