Another Hurdle!

I’m so very pleased to say that Shattered Dreams is now edited!   Thank you Jerry S!

This marks a milestone for me in that I finally have a manuscript ready to submit.  Now the question is, do I self publish or try for traditional publishing.  I’ve read a lovely article written by one of my favorite writers about the pros and cons of each direction.  With more than 20 books under her belt, published each way, she definitely knows what she’s talking about.  I thought I would rather go the traditional route, but after reading this I am leaning more towards self publishing.   Time to do some thinking.. and of course, I’m consulting the husband who always steers me right.

Stay tuned!

Melissa was born in Tupelo, Mississippi and raised in a small rural town. She found a love of reading very early and quickly devoured everything she could. In the fourth grade she discovered a multitude of worlds when she received her first library card. Told repeatedly that she had a wonderful imagination, she turned to scribbling her musings and wrote her first novel while in college. It wasn't until after her fortieth birthday that she began to write in earnest. Her first book, Shattered Dreams, was self published and was soon followed by two sequels. Melissa now resides in Meridian, Mississippi with her supportive family - husband Robert and daughter Rebecca, two cats, and a precocious Chihuahua. When she isn't writing, she spends way too much time communicating with her online friends from around the world and feeding her ravenous appetite for the written word. Facebook: Twitter: Blog:

  1. Congratulations on your most recent Milestone! yay!
    Having thought a lot about which route to take myself, although not at your stage yet, I had considered both and, figured, that since self publishing actually doesn’t cost anything (money is a factor for me) then that could be the best for me. Having said that I have done very little in the way of research toward the more traditional route. Is there anything stopping you from self publishing THEN going the other way ? Can that be possible perhaps? Might be a thought just to see how it goes. If you are e-book publishing via Amazon Kindle then I for one will be buying Shattered Dreams the moment it is available.
