    Hi, all

    Decided to poke around here after getting an email from the CW administrators. I'm a former journalist and current stay-at-home mother working on completing the first draft of my first novel. I live in northern Norway with my husband and our two toddlers.

    Lots of genres interest me and I'd like to try my hand at a few. My WIP is a suspense/thriller and I'm also researching for a historical fiction novel, while jotting down ideas for a fantasy epic.

    I'm not sure whether I'll attempt self-publication, but I'm curious about it and want to learn all I can. Successful self-published authors have skills and qualities that every aspiring writer would do well to take note of.

    I may not post much since I know next to nothing, but I intend to lurk a little bit and learn from my betters. :)

    Hi EB!

    I'm sure that Self-Pubs and Trads both need to produce the best possible product before bringing it to market (either directly to the reader, publisher, or agent). So we all have that in common!

    :)
