Welcome back, everyone! This week’s blog is for my fellow indie writers: those of you who have self-published your work, or are thinking about self-publishing.  One of the challenges I face as a writer, is simply getting people to read my work.  Gaining exposure can be difficult.  Thankfully, I came across a wonderful resource which may help solve that problem: The Queens Public Library.  For those of you in NY, or at least familiar with NY, my wonderful state is broken into 5 boroughs (“counties” in other states).  There’s Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island.  I live in Queens, and I use the Queens Public Library ALOT.  A librarian recently informed me, QPL has a new program, where writers can publish their work in the form of an ebook, and make their work available for patrons to borrow through the library system.  You won’t receive any royalties for this, but it is a great way to gain some exposure.  I have decided to participate.  Below, is a link to the QPL site, where writers wan upload their work for consideration:

I strongly recommend this.  When you upload your work, you also have the option of including  a link to a website, if  a physical copy of your book is available for sale.

Next week: The birth of Our Lady of Righteous Rage, and the 20th anniversary of Woolaston Entertainment! (yes, my creation is turning 20!). Until next week…
