My decision is made — I am publishing my own book. An eBook. I will be uploading to both Amazon for Kindle and Smashwords for everyone else. And now the fun begins.

On the first of August I will be sending my manuscript out for editing. The efforts of this lovely lady will be duly acknowledged in my book. The cost of her services will be my greatest expense. Though I will say she is worth every bit of it.
As to my other expenses, I will relate them later. I still need to do some more research.
Word for today: fey — On warm evenings little Wanda chased lightning bugs in they fey dance of the fairies.
