My Book

Hey, can we do shameless self-promotion here? I think I read someone else using the phrase, so I'm going to go for it. It's not all self-promotion, of course; it's also a great joy I can share.
I published a book early this year. It's a fantasy fiction novel entitled "As in a Mirror." If you have any taste for this genre, please order a copy and let me know what you think. I'd love to hear your comments.

It's only available online (through an internet self-publishing house): www(dot)lulu(dot)com. Search for my name (emrys tyler) and "As in a Mirror" ought to come up. If you're feeling really keen, after you read it (not before) leave a review on the Lulu website.

I post this now because I just had to do a major revision--changing one name in the text--because a character showed up in a scene where he wasn't supposed to be present. Ach! But now it's flawless until another reader finds another error. Maybe you'll be the next one!

Thanks for indulging me.

Well how cool is that?

I wrote a novel last November, Emrys, as part of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month... it's on the web). I have not showed it to anyone, but I do love the title: Mermaid Prayers. It's a coming of age story of a woman who--!-- ends up a minister.

I am interested in this genre Emrys. If I am able to get the book and read it I would love to talk about it, the process and everything else.

How cool it is that you have written a book - when do you find the time? I can't say I am big on fantasy fiction, however I am big on reading anything written by friends. And I could use an escape right about now!

I have not written much fiction - but perhaps I can write one of those "before I read the book" reviews!

Glad to see some shameless self-promotion. If you can't do that among friends where else can you do it?

All is grace,

I love the title of your novel. How whimsical! If you ever decide you want to show it to someone, I promise I'd be encouraging and kind. Like practically everyone I know I have an unfinished story or two hanging around and I have great admiration for anyone who actually finishes one!

Grace and peace,

PS Congrats on the call!
