Last year, on my way to work, I have collapsed, because of my dodgy spine. I have two slipped discs, and my sciatic nerve has got stuck between them. I couldn't walk properly, couldn't work, I have been jailed in my flat for more than 7 months, all alone and i was getting very depressed. I do suffer depression anyway, it effects my day to day life. However, I was also very bored, so I have decided to start writing. The story, more or less, has been cooking in my brain since I was 10 years old, just never had the courage to actually sit down and start it. My only company, Meera, the veiled chameleon was also a huge inspiration to get things going. I was writing and writing for 12 hours every day, sometimes more, and spent weeks on editing the first book. Finally it was done. Well, at least to my standards. I have managed to self publish it on amazon, as an eBook, but since then I have got feedback. Not all of them were good.
Everyone says that plot is great, and has a lot of potential, but they can tell that I didn't use an editor.
Well yeah, it's kinda hard, when you're pretty much disabled at home, with no income. The other thing is, that self-publishing requires funds for advertising. Same as above...
So I guess, lovely people, I need your help to get this baby published. And edited properly at first. Oh and whilst I'm at the 'begging you to help me' part :( I think my cover could use a redo as well :/
Every help would be very much appreciated!
