I'm officially a published author!!

OK, I confess I cheated a little bit.

I used Kindle Direct Publishing.

But it's still publishing! So I'm counting it! :)

*   *   *   *   *

So here it is! It's just a short story but it's a start!

If you want to check it out, here it is in the US Kindle store, here is the UK store, and here is the DE store.

You don't have to have a Kindle to read it, you can download the Kindle for PC software for free!

So anyway, I was excited so I thought I'd share my excitement with the people I knew would be most likely to share it! :)

I am working on doing a re-write on Just A Piece Of Trash and then I'll have to get the formatting done so I can submit it as well. Who knows where I'll go from there! I have all kinds of ideas floating around in my head, so I'll just have to grab one and go for it!

 I would also like to say thank you to all of you who have encouraged me so much in my writing and gave me the incentive to keep at it and give this a try!

You Guys Are GREAT!!!


  1. Congrats! That is awesome. I have yet to get a kindle but maybe someday!

  2. Andy this is fantastic! I don't have a Kindle YET... that means one day I just might purchase one. I'm old fashioned when it comes to my reading, I love the feel and smell of books. Congratulations! If time permits sometime in the near future I'll give this a read, I still have one short novel on my "to read" list and I have it here, I just have very little, to no time to pleasure read right now.

    Have a fantastic day!

  3. Thanks Chennee! :) Sorry, I had too! :) I don't have a Kindle either and I probably won't get one. I am perfectly happy reading e-books on my laptop.

    Thanks Darlene! I will pick a real book over an e-book any day but getting published this way is free and relatively easy so I decided to go for it! :)

  4. Yay! Congrats to you :D Kindle Direct or not, published is still published. Major kudos your way :)

  5. Thanks Jamie! I feel the same way! Times are changing so I am just keeping up with the times! :)

  6. Getting published is amazing. I'm so proud of you. Hope you get lost of happy readers and comments on your story.

  7. Thanks Nancy! :) I'll be happy if I just get a few happy readers to begin with! :)

  8. Oh my goodness, look at what I've missed!!!! What a huge accomplishment Andy. You should definitely continue writing, you've got such a wonderful talent. I'm so very excited for you!!

  9. Thank you Cheilsea! I do intend to keep writing. I have so many ideas bouncing around I think it will be hardest to just pick one to get started with! :)

  10. WOW!! Yay! Imagine balloons and streamers and confetti in my post! I am going to read it, and blog it.

    WOOOT WOOOT for you!


  11. Thank you SO much, Paula! I am really excited about it! This was just a starter for me to see how it all worked. I have been developing an idea for my next project and am champing at the bit to get started! :) It's so much fun!
