Lillie’s Journey With the Remember Man Pt. 1

So… the novel is entitled The Remember Man.   I finished the first draft a little over a year ago and have spent the last year rewriting and shaking in my boots about the next step in the process.

Last week on my way to Idaho I bought and read Catherine Ann Howard’s book,  Self-Printed: The Sane Person’s Guide To Self Publishing.  In her own witty way Catherine Caffeinated (the title of her blog) took my fear of the process away. She gave me several steps I had never really thought of taking. She gave me clear reasons for not skipping these steps and she took the scary out of them for me.

If you are considering self-publishing or “self-printing” as Catherine puts it pick up a copy of  Self-Printed by going to her website here:

It’s an easy read and well worth the time.

I realized as I read Catherine’s book that I was missing the first step in my publishing journey and that is to submit my manuscript to agents and publishers. So I dug out my query letters, polished them up and sent out my first query for The Remember Man  to an agency.

Keep the dream alive. Keep it in prayer!
