Exciting News ~~ I’ve Been Published!

Hello dear readers. Just a quick update on some exciting news. I’ve been published!

It’s true. I heard about Etherbooks.com from my good friend Maddie over at Breezy Books. (Go read her blog and buy her books!) She sent me an email when she heard about Ether books. She believed my short stories were good enough to be published and I thank her so much for believing in me. Big hugs Maddie my friend!

Anyway, Etherbooks.com in their own words:

Ether Books is a new mobile social reading platform, connecting Writers and Readers around the world. Ether publishes “made for mobile” Quick Reads straight to Smart Phones, the fastest growing digital reading device on the planet. Discover talented new and bestselling writers right from your pocket.

The gist of it is that you download a free app onto your Smart Phone, that app leads you to the Ether Books site that lets you download short stories in many genres for quick reads. They have loads of stories and mine is one of them! Many stories are free, others cost 69p (pence, they are based in the UK). Payment can be made by credit cards or PayPal. It’s a cheap price to pay for some great reads. Wonderful  if you are waiting for an appointment, riding the bus to work or home, etc.

What is funny for me is that I don’t have a Smart Phone as yet (I’m saving up for one). I managed to download the app onto my iPod. You can also download it to an iPad or Android.

So please if you can go to their website, download the free app and then my story! It would be great to be supported by my readers! I would appreciate it to the moon and back. My story may be a familiar one to some, it’s called “Promises”. I did some editing before submitting it to Ether Books. (They have a team of people who read the stories submitted to them and then decide if it’s good enough to publish)  This story was accepted by them in less than 24 hours! Now that made me super excited.

Promises is under Sci-fi/fantasy. I will be submitting another story later today or tomorrow and then another later this coming week. Hopefully they all will be approved and published. I also go under the pen name of JL Phillips. What is exciting also is Ether Books has Paul McCartney on there too! He writes about vegan living. How’s that for some classy companions?

Go take a look around Ether Books! Thank you so much for your support! I couldn’t do this without all of you special people!
