I started DarkStar in July 2009 and finished in October...4 months. I thought that was pretty good. But the editing, writing, rewriting, researching agents, querying agents, etc., etc., etc., took forever! I finally decided (after rejecting a couple offers once I read their contract), that it was going to be next to impossible, in the publishing world, to have anyone look at my novel, so I opted to self publish. I have been very happy with that decision.
After three years, I released DarkStar. It is the first book of a trilogy. I am working on the second book, "Wizard" but don't have a release date yet. (Not soon enough for those who have read DarkStar!)
My DarkStar reviews, so far, are very positive and it is doing really well! I hope readers will want to explore the DarkStar world. I know they won't be disappointed!!!! You can check out reviews on both my website www.darkstarblog.com and Amazon.com.
DarkStar is available at www.createspace.com/3538868
and on Amazon.com as both book and e-book. E-book is only $2.99!!(less)
