Publication Dreams

Being creative, being a writer is who I’ve always been.  As long as I COULD write, I’ve been writing. Novels, novellas, short stories.  I have a plethora of them, In the early to mid 1990s I began to see some success, having been been published sporadically in the small press.  Once you get a taste of that success it spurs you focus is on reaching for greater goals.

 

One of the questions that people ask is
Would you do what you’re doing if you didn’t reap abundance from it?

 

I’ve been writing for well over forty years.  So I guess the answer to that question is yes.  Abundance doesn’t always have to be financial however.  But I HAVE been writing without financial abundance for sometime now.  That’s all about to change. After years of doing my best to find a greater market for the writing I do, I have finally captured my leprechaun.  In November 2018, I will see two books get published simultaneously.

Fahrenheit Books, a Guilford Connecticut publisher is taking on my books.  One, a short story collection of dark fantasy is called:
Random Acts: Stories of Redemption

This book is a collection of short stories I wrote in the late 1980s to mid 1990s.  The other book is essays on death and dying and my impression about what happens to us after we pass.  That book is titled:

This was originally scheduled to happen last year but as with all tentative publication dates it was delayed.  I’m so excited for this to happen. It’s been a long time coming and a lifelong dream. Isn’t it every writer’s goal to be published?  If not, then maybe you should reconsider writing. Robert Heinlein said it best with his rules of writing:
Rule One: You Must Write. …

Rule Two: Finish What You Start. …
Rule Three: You Must Refrain From Rewriting, Except to Editorial Order. …
Rule Four: You Must Put Your Story on the Market. …
Rule Five: You Must Keep it on the Market until it has Sold. …
Rule Six: Start Working on Something Else.

One of the most important factors that lead to this is that I didn’t give up, that I didn’t let anyone stand in my way.  There have been people in my life who have dissuaded me. Telling me:
No!  You can’t do that.  Telling me no is probably the greatest motivator someone can give me.  It provides the EXACT opposite of the original intent.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well! Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Chris

Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;
We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.
