Last night I got the email from Amazon that my first novel was up on the store, and ready for pre-orders! It was incredibly exciting, after all these years thinking about writing a novel, to actually see that first work up there on the Amazon site.
Unfortunately, I also have a terrible cold, so I had to celebrate with Neo Citran! If you’re interested in taking a look, you can see the novel on the site by going to Amazon.com, or .ca, or .wherever you are, and searching the title.
I’m not expecting to see massive sales of a first novel by an unknown author, but for someone like me it’s simply exciting to have this first work completed and published. It was also a huge learning experience, going through the editing process, cover design, jumping all the hoops for publication on the Amazon system, and so on. But, now that it’s done, I would greatly recommend self-publishing for anyone out there who feels they have a book inside them waiting to get out.
Hopefully some of you will check it out and I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it!
Happy reading, Gary Symons
