One of these days, I am going to sit down and write a long blog about how much I hate statistics class, but this is not that day.
(The mistake being the fault in taking statistics to begin with)
No, this day is all about trying new things. Those new things today refer to the self publishing platform Pronoun.
In previous self publishing endeavors, I have gone through CreateSpace. Anyone who has wanted to see their words in print has probably at least considered this particular avenue, but having reached a point where the old is growing stale, I decided to branch out.
For those of you who were successful with NaNoWriMo this year, Pronoun was one of the offers. I decided, what the hell, and signed up. Now, it has, admittedly, taken me two months to finish, but then, well, that’s life.
Still, with a new platform, I decided to try a new everything. Rather than the young adult fiction I have been working with on CreateSpace, I decided to throw into the world one of my more unique endeavors. Death’s End (link to come) is about Persephone, a reaper who collects souls for Death. And I fell away from all the previous constraints about where a plot should start and end, and I’m sure I’ll someday be reviewed mercilessly for my endeavor, but it felt so right for this story. And what better story to share on this new platform than one that is a bit of a non sequitur?
So far, I have nothing but positive things to say about Pronoun. They very helpfully had guidance for formatting, the process itself was painless, and I love the final product as it stands. Going forward, who knows, but then:

So happy for you that you branched out and happy for \”the poeple\” because another impressive story is out for all to read! 🙂
