As of this morning, my very first novel "Float" became available as an e-book in the Amazon Kindle store and the Barnes & Noble Nook store. Which means you can read it.
And if you don't have a Kindle or a Nook, each website has reading app downloads for free, if you are one of the many who own an iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android, Windows Phone, Mac or PC.
But now, dare I call myself... an author? *gasp* Maybe my book isn't in print, maybe it's not through one of the so-called "Big Six" publishing companies, maybe I don't have endorsements from J.K. Rowling or J.D. Salinger or R.L. Stine or LL Cool J...
But my book - a composition of thoughts and words from my mind - is available for the world to read, whether they choose to read it or not. I guess I could call myself an author. Won't you make me the happiest author on Earth, and be my reader?
I wish I had more to say on the subject, but this post is of the "HURRAY!" variety. Also, I updated some of this blog's settings, so that you don't have to be a member on Blogger/Blogspot to post comments. I look forward to some feedback.
Why are you still reading this? Clyde and his friends are waiting...
