Different Authors/Different Journeys
"I've been in the ad biz all my life, but I always had this dream of writing 'the ultimate ghost story.' After four years of researching and writing, Mean Spirits was finally complete.
With high hopes, I sent it to six agents and received six rejections. Ouch!
Fast forward 10 years. One of my creative directors showed me a book that he had self-published through iUniverse. Not only did it look great, it was also available on Barnes & Noble.com (www.bn.com) and Amazon.com.
My mind started spinning: What if I self-published Mean Spirits with iUniverse and marketed it myself?
The iUniverse staff was phenomenal. They walked me through the publishing process and produced a fantastic-looking book in a matter of weeks. I put my marketing plan to work, and Mean Spirits ultimately rose to the No. 1 selling ghost story on Amazon.com. As a result, it became part of iUniverse's prestigious Star Program.
Now I'm a published author and I'm still writing. Who knows, maybe I can conjure up a few more spirits to help bring even a little more success to my next book."
