message 30: by H.A. (new)

H.A. Dawson G'day everyone I am a British writer and possibly an author! I have been creating stories for over 11 years and in that time written 30 books all character based psychological suspense/thrillers. They are not police procedurals, however I do introduce private investigators in some of my series as they create some intriguing dilemmas. I draw on emotive social issues as a backdrop to these stories. I'm not making any claims about my work. I think I should have some experience after 3 million edited words. I have been removing much of my material from most book vendors I believe the quantity may provide the wrong attitude to my work. I have written a further 4 novels this year. All my books get revised every 2 years. Phew! I shall never rely on Amazon. My website is undergoing a redesign in order to provide some audio story samples. Love to here from authors willing to team up.

message 31: by Angelica (new)

Angelica Hi my pen name is Angelica Kate, and I write primarily contemporary romance but have dabbled in the science fiction genre from time to time.

Love meeting others following their dreams with the written word.

message 39: by Lynn (new)

Lynn Hallbrooks Howdy Y'all.

I'm Lynn Hallbrooks. I lived many years in Texas and currently, I'm in Colorado with a friend. That's a long story and perhaps one day I'll write about it.

I am feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the experience in here. I've been a self-published/Indie author since 2011 and have seen many of you around social media. I started with my writing/business partner, David McKoy. Together we did the Call Sign: Wrecking Crew series. David passed away earlier this year but his wife was kind enough to allow me to continue sharing the series.

I've written a non-fiction book and helped compile a book of quotations for Israel O. Okundaye, a native Nigerian. The book happens to be on sale. I'll post it in the book section.

I founded Call Sign Wrecking Crew, LLC - - and recently started another website, Author Reader Cheerleader - - in order to provide tips and tricks for authors and readers. I'm sure many of you are not in need of them but if you want to take a look and possibly share with others, I'd be honored.

Thanks so much for the invitation. I have a busy schedule, among the things I have going on are a couple more nonfiction books in the work plus a collection of short stories.
