It's finally happened, I've achieved one ambition. I have become a published author with my own work and under my own name.
It's taken a lot of hard work, a little cursing and swearing, but Monday 10th November saw my first novel, 'The Queen's Favourite', published as a Kindle ebook.
My first novel, available at Amazon.
It is a historical novel, in the same vein as those by Philippa Gregory, Elizabeth Chadwick and Alison Weir (I hope). It tells the life story of Robert Dudley, the favourite of Queen Elizabeth I.
Creating an ebook has been a lot more work than I thought it would be. I read lots of books on how it was possible to do it in 5 minutes or an hour at most. Well, all I can say is they must be very small books. But it has been a thoroughly worthwhile experience, and one I would gladly repeat.
I am a Copywriter, Proofreader, Virtual Secretary and Author.
