AlienAlmanac Books

Ah, you found me.  Welcome to the main book page and AlienAlmanac.

I wrote a book called The Last One.  My very first novel took two years to write in between growing children, a full time job, and among life's other demands.  Boy, I was so excited when it was finished and decided to publish it.

After a billion rejections from publishers and agents, I chose a self-publishing company iUniverse to get my masterpiece out there.  Yes, you have pay money to make this happen.

Self-publishing is more accessible than ever before.  But, I learned many valuable lessons during the process like the importance of editting, having a good cover (look at that cover it's so ugly), structure, and a little planning ahead.  There's hundreds of websites and books out there that can supply that advice.

Well, I got bit.  Writing books is in my blood now.  I took a long term approach and built this website, AlienAlmanac, as a means to express my fascination for science ficition and as a vehicle to share more of my writing.

I continue to write but I won't make any promises that I'm ready to publish another book anytime soon.  Time is my demon, however I am certain you will see more works in the future.

Anyway, read The Last One.  Below is a brief synopsis.
