about-APG

Logo

Alexandria Publishing Group is a writers’ collective made up of individual authors with proven talent. Each has shown dedication and skill in creating and producing amazing books that compel and create a strong, solid reading platform.  Quality is a key and critical factor in inclusion on the group’s’ roster, alongside writers with a true passion for writing.

“I’ve always written,” says Kai, “and it really appeals to me to work with other indie authors and providers to pool our resources. Working as an editor with the group too, really means I can be sure that I’m investing in like-minded individuals and have the support I need for my own books. And while I can offer a lot as a writer, I’m also keen to help indies reach a broader audience.”

OSTFlower2largeWhat a wonderful feeling! 12-12-12 I hit the publish button on Amazon, then I jumped up and started cleaning everything I could find. Nerves.

An hour later, my book was no longer In Review status but back in Draft. I waited a whole 10 minutes for an explanation from Amazon before trying to publish again. Yeah, I was impatient.

This happened twice more. I tried tweaking little things to see if it was a formatting error or I missed a check box. Finally, I went to bed hoping that by morning Amazon would have sent me an email. They did. In all the excitement I somehow neglected to put myself down as the author. How embarrassing.

My cheeks bright red, I fixed the error and published once more. Within an hour One Small Touch was available for purchase! I shouted my happiness in Facebook-land and celebrated with my family. I thought about writing a blog post but couldn’t settle down long enough to get the words down. I should have forced myself, by Friday evening I was horribly sick.

My husband is a remote technician and he brought back some sort of gnarly-oak funk from one of his facilities. It laid out the entire family for well over a week. We’re just now feeling mostly normal. The kids are still coughing but the awful energy drain, vomiting and fevers have abated. Yeah, it was a combination flu/bronchitis thing. Oddest mix of illness I’ve ever encountered.

Anyway, that’s why I haven’t been able to update my website with a post about One Small Touch. It’s not that I didn’t love everyone. It’s because I literally couldn’t get out of bed for more than a moment of two for far too long.

Oh! The link!

One Small Touch available on Amazon today (and tomorrow and the next day and the next!)

I was having a hard time writing the other day so I fired up Photoshop and put together a cover for my werewolf story. The awesomely talented Troy Bedingfield came up with the concept (and I’m sure once I’m ready for publication he’ll refine it greatly) but I wanted to see what I could do. It’s all about stretching your comfort zones sometimes. :)
