And a new way to find me on the internet. I grabbed the domain name mkeidson.com, since it was still available. I’m thinking I’ll publish under the pen name M.K. Eidson, since it will fit on book covers more nicely than the longer Michael K. Eidson.
Publication of my debut fantasy novel is still some ways away. I’ll post news about it on this site as I reach certain landmarks. Right now, I’m working on the third major revision of the novel, incorporating all of the feedback received from beta readers of the first two versions of the book. Over the past 5 years, since I decided to get serious about novel writing, I’ve learned a great deal about the art of writing for publication, and I’m bringing it all to bear on my debut novel.
Let me just say this: If you’re thinking about writing a novel, consider first what you want to get out of it. If you want a career as an author, great. Prepare for continual disappointment. If you overcome that aspect of writing, maybe you’ll make it.
