In the Beginning, there was an IDEA…
I had a little inkling of an idea about 10 years ago for a story that I thought would make a GREAT movie. I even wrote it as a screenplay. After a couple of years of marketing it in that closed door society, I grew despondent and put it in a drawer.
Then I began to hear about the successes of self-publishers like Hugh Howey and John Locke. I KNEW I could do the same.
DAY ZERO the screenplay came out of the drawer and was used as an outline for my novel, DAY ZERO: THE BOOK OF PATRICK. I worked on it sporadically until I got frustrated at how slow my progress was turning out to be. In steps NaNoWriMo, the National Write a Novel month. I decided to challenge my sister to spur each other on to finish our novels that month.
As you can see, it worked.
Very soon, it will be published in paperback and as an e-book. I can’t tell you how excited I am to watch this idea turned screenplay turned novel take off to fly!
