I am a writer and have been writing for some time on the Internet. I have had a number of somewhat popular “blogs” over the last ten years or so, and am an avid participant in Internet Culture.
I recently completed a book and am interested in having some of it published on “paper”. I’ve been writing on the net for free long enough to hone my talents, and now think that maybe getting paid for my writing might be possible (I’ve been selling the book to friends and have received a great deal of positive feedback, including the suggestion to write this email).
As mentioned, I wrote a book, but am stilling looking for a good editor (or editors) to help me refine it further before complete publication.
The first three Chapters of the book can be found on my website.
I realize many of you have policies against re-printing “published” material, but I’m not sure how self-publishing on the Net fits into that equation. I was hoping one or more of you might be able to help out with that question.
Please let me know if any of you are interesting in purchasing a copy of my story (in chapter form) for publication, or have any advice for a young writer trying to make a living at twiddling his fingers over a keyboard.
Thanks you for your time, and I hope you have a Happy New Year!
