Developing a Novel from Family History Research
From Story to Book, follows my thoughts and feelings as I set out on an amazing journey to write a novel inspired by family history.
When I started I didn’t think I would get this far. Now, with the publication of
Condemned by Fate imminent, things are getting serious!!
I had never considered writing a book but when I couldn’t get the story of my family history out of my mind, it became inevitable. By 2014, when I realised the book was turning out better than I imagined, I started the blog.
The posts chart my fears about writing and shares lessons I’ve learned on the art of creative writing and editing. More recently I’ve considered the pros and cons of self-publishing and I am about to embark on a series of posts about things you need to know to successfully market a book.
Why not take a look at my journey so far…Maybe it will inspire you too!
