Born and raised in Minnesota, I wasn't a very popular girl. my shyness kept me isolated which is why I started reading, and then writing. My first novel was a 3rd graders idea of adventure. Trixie Beldon influnced me greatly, but as you can guess the story was strong the writing weak. Since then (29 years later) I was picked up by Kensington press, a short lived success. When my editor left, my stable option was not picked up and other editors didn't like my work. After a few submissions to other publishers and rejection after rejection I lay my pen down for a while. A week later I was back at it only this time I forgot the historicals which I never really wanted to write anyway. Dream Walkin' has earned 5 five stars on Amazon, and 2 five s

Colleen McLain Hello my literary friends.
I have up loaded Dream Walkin' as a sample, though the entire book is uploaded I have set for only 20% sample because I am not sure I can do anything else with it as I joined the KDP program. The buttoms indicate its available on Barns and Noble but it isn't there anymore also due to KDP. I am advised that I can return it to B&N after my three months on KDP is fulfilled. Anyway, Having gotten this far in epublishing yippy..> wiping the moisture from my forehead....
I am wondering if I should upload books in progress as samples, but I'd like your feed back on that.
Also any other promtional insite would be warmly welcome. I have lost my job as predicted in my first blog and need sales!! Thanks friends.
Good Reading!!!

Mermarie Thank you for the friend request, Colleen! What heads up were you referring to, though? :>

I'm so excited your books are making it to the digitized world! :D
