I have leaned more in the past few months about marketing strategies than I did in the years since I first wrote “Unwritten Life” in 2004. I have decided to take a new look at my old (and published) works as I continue to work on my current projects, while also doing some reviews. Hey, I figure I read a lot anyways, I might as well review what I write. I do, however, only post the reviews of the stories that I like and if I feel they deserve less than 3 stars, I will not post my review.
Anyway, that’s my rant, Getting back to my focus on “old” stories. I’m working to start promoting the ones I already have out there and I figured the best way is to start at the beginning.
“Unwritten Life” was written in December of 2004. Yes, it took me four weeks to write my first draft of the lovely story that grew into a Saga with 68 volumes. The first edition “Unwritten Life” was published by then-publisher PublishAmerica (Now, it’s America Star books) in May of 2005. After the contract on that expired, I made some minor changes (but not to the storyline) and republished the second edition of “Unwritten Life” in 2012 by Lulu. It is now available on KINDLE format as well. (And until the end of July, it’s on sale for 99 cents). In about two to three weeks, it will also be available on audiobooks, and when it is, I will be shouting out loud on that one!
“Unwritten Life” is just the beginning of the story. Not only for the main Character Alex Garrison, but also for me, since it was the first full length book I had ever written. Since that fateful day when I finished it, I have written over 83 books. But this is about Alex Garrison and the friends and family she meets on her “unwritten” path. And just a hint (even on book 68, Alex Garrison is still alive and well, well, kind of).
Recently, I was interviewed about “Unwritten Life” and here is the link to my INTERVIEW at HEI!Books
