My first self-published little story, Up in Flames was mainly written to give readers a taste of my writing style. It was also my way of testing the waters of self-publishing, a big step where the author is basically in control of everything with regard to the book. Between Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Nobles it has received 80 reviews and is rated a solid four out of five stars.
Anyone who's read the story knows that both main characters are white. I've been wanting to try something that I sure hope doesn't offend anyone, or wind up biting me in the butt. If it does what I hope it does it will be worth taking this step.
Up in Flames is still available.
