You've made friends on Twitter, right? So you know what I mean when I say I'm so lucky to have met the lovely Maryanne Wells on my Twitter stream.
Maryanne and I recently got together for a chat on self-publishing her novel, Matriculated Death.
Some of the things we talked about:
How she came up with the idea for Matriculated Death during law school
Writing a blog-story for friends from law school
Using beta readers and a well-trusted friend for editing, and needing brutal honesty when editing
Marketing strategies and how they'll change between pre-publishing and post-publishing
Reasons for self-publishing, particularly freedom to release books on your own schedule
Why Twitter has been a pleasant surprise in her marketing plan
Putting pieces of ourselves into our fictional characters
Writing under a Pen Name
Matriculated Death, Book One of The Undead Bar Association, is available from Amazon in either e-format or paperback. It sounds like a fantastic romp with all the creatures of the night, and I can't wait to read it!
