Hi ladies! I am a stay at home mom to three boys - 14 year old twins and a 12 year old. Now that they're older(and too cool to hang with mom and dad!) I finally have the time to write my book! I am beyond scared! It's something I've wanted to do for years, but just simply did not have the time...I'm sure you relate! I feel like I'm jumping off the cliff I've been standing on for years! I would love some input about what genres you like to read and any other thoughts you may have on books/reading! thanks i advance for your help! I look forward to meeting everyone and hopefully making some new friends!

Thanks for the input! I am definitely aware of the "getting published headaches!" I have been wanting to write my book for so long but just simply never had the time. The best time for me to write now seems to be after my family is asleep! Even though I'm home days and our boys are in school, it's not a time I feel inspired...especially trying to get laundry and cleaning done! LOL. I am writing a fiction/romance/paranormal romance book that I would consider to be in the YA (young adult) category. I'm just hoping that whoever reads it, once it's actually out there, enjoys it! I know how valuable personal time is and I hope that I bring something positive to that time for some people! Thanks so much!

I am a retired teacher and am paying to publish a book for kids with sensory needs about going to the movie theater. I took an online class about getting published and found out that getting published is not for the faint of heart. You have to be published to get published. There are online contests to enter. You will probably get a lot of rejections. Write about what you like and the readers will like it. Good luck!
