I promise that is as much as I will discuss about my article in this Blog, as I realize that Fantasy Sports has nothing to do with Cloud 10. Instead I want to talk about the process I used to get my words in front of the world. A few weeks I hadn't even considered I would be doing anything like this at all. Even this website and blog was only a thought buried in the back of my mind even a month ago.
Now let's fast forward to two weeks ago. At the time I was work, listening to an interview on satellite radio when I heard a guest talk about ways to break into the business of Fantasy Sports which is exploding in North America right now. (There was a 6 page story about the industry in Sports Illustrated last week). The easiest way, the guest and host discussed, was to contact websites and ask to volunteer your time writing articles. If you are any good, there are lots of opportunities for new writers, they discussed. So that's what I did. I literally send the guest who hadn't recently launched his own new site, an email and asked to write an article. A day later I sent him my first submission, and he liked it. Then within 48 hrs I was part of his daily writer's distro email list.
Unlike back in the day, when you used to have go head to head with a newspaper editor in order to get your start in writing, nowadays, new websites are are popping up daily, on every conceivable subject. In the weeks to come, I expect to make my book available on Amazon or maybe even through this website somehow. If I have manage to build up a small, but loyal following of readers who enjoy my work, I think that can only improve my chances of eventually selling copies of my novel. And who knows, one of my readers might even have a publishing connection.
