So, this is my first fiction book. I have written and published non-fiction books but this is something completely different.
I have always wanted to do this, but I never had the courage to go for it. I do remember getting a few rejections when I was a kid. I wrote a few short stories for small magazines.
I could have self-published on Amazon or some other platform but I put fiction writing on such a high pedastal that I put it completely out of reach.
I had to trick myself into even writing Lost Portals (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PPB9C6L). I had actually written an entirely different book called RPDreams. I made the mistake of putting the book on such a high pedestal that I made goal unreachable. I tricked myself into writing this. I started with a throw away idea that I didn’t think much about. I would just write if for fun. Once the characters started to develop, I realized I cared about the direction of the story. I started to take it more serious and made changes as needed.
I just had fun writing it and I didn’t take it too seriously.
