For my first post on this blog I thought it would be beneficial if I introduced myself. My name is T. B. Markinson. Some of you may know me from my blog, 50 Year Project. And I’m guessing a lot more of you don’t know me at all. But I hope to get to know many of you soon.
When I first began my 50 Year blog I didn’t know what to expect. I thought it would be a good way to keep track of my challenge. What I discovered was the kindness of so many bloggers out there. Many people from all over the world have been so supportive.
Now that I am getting ready to launch my first novel, A Woman Lost, I wanted to start a blog to chronicle my adventures in writing and self-publishing. The 50 Year Project will continue as well, but it will stay on that blog. However, I don’t want this new blog to be all about me. One of my goals is to review books, including self-published works. I’ve discovered so many wonderful writers and I want to highlight many of them. Also, I want to help other authors promote their books. If you are interested in doing an interview, a guest post, or cover reveal please send me an email: tbmarkinson at gmail dot com (please see my policy pages). I’m not expecting a huge response right away since this blog is just a baby. So I do have many books lined up to read on my Kindle. My next post will share which books and authors I’m starting with.
Like the blogging community I’ve found the self-publishing community to be just as welcoming and helpful. I’m a firm believer in teamwork. If we all work together we can reach new heights.
Thanks for stopping by. I’m excited about this new project and meeting many authors, publishers, and readers along the way.
