Hi everyone, at last I can announce that I have self published my second novel, and it is now for sale on Amazon. BOY PEELING FRUIT is a painting by the artist, Caravaggio, and brings together the past and the present in my crime/thriller book. Mostly set in Rome, but also in a small village on the outskirts of Chester, Cheshire. It is a completely different genre to my first novel, A GRAVE INHERITANCE, which is a time slip historical novel. I struggled to self publish to be honest. Thank goodness for my daughter, Joanne, who help with the formatting and designed my cover. I'm so happy I could burst. I would like to put a photo of my book on here for you to see, but I'm not sure how to do it. So bear with me while I give it a go. I have a severe eye disability which limits the time I can spend getting words on to paper or my laptop. I write everything in my head first, and thank goodness for a good memory. I am considering investing in a dictating app, and I wondered if any members could recommend one.
Congratulations, Anne. I wish you all the best with it. I live in Cheadle, Cheshire (Some say Greater Manchester, but I'm not having any of that!). I love Chester and visit often.
If you have the latest version of Word on your computer, it already has 'Dictate' built in. I have tried it and it works well, even with my Northern accent. I'd try that before splashing out on anything else. At least it is straight into a Word document you can work with.
