One Month to Publish

The Minution Chronicles - Saving Zinitheron
Eight Years to Write, One Month to Publish!
I am a father of four kids ranging in age from twelve to eighteen. I have a full time job as a software engineer, and I write in my "spare" time. I suppose you may now understand why my first project took eight years to complete!
After I finished the book, I began sending query letters to book agents. After sending out about thirty queries and receiving about 15 negative responses, I decided that I would put the book on hold while working on other projects.
After a while, I got the itch again, so I decided to explore the self-publishing route. It's been a lot of fun!
I formatted the interior myself using MS word, purchased a royalty free photograph off of a website to use as the cover, and created the actual cover using Photoshop. The process could not have been easier. Using CreateSpace
, you upload your cover and interior files, and for less than ten bucks (and in less than a week), you have a proof to review!
The quality is very good, and the price is reasonable. I can purchase copies of a 290 page novel for less than 4.50!
If anyone is interested, please check it out. The reviews I have received so far from the several kids who have read it are very positive!
