Me and technology do not go hand in hand, if we were walking down the street together, it would be on the other side of the road, ignoring me.
I do feature on other sites, if you want a more regular update from me and to find links to my work, you can find them all on my wordpress site. http://www.ellagrey.wordpress.com
Okay, here it is.
I get this uncontrollable sense of glee when my eshorts make an appearance on bestsellers lists. I never thought my writing would be popular, and sometimes I think that's the best way to be a writer.
You should write for yourself, something that you'd enjoy reading. If you don't have high hopes that you won't be disappointed.
But sometimes you need a little faith.
You need someone to believe in you when you don't believe in yourself. This is why I think editors and fellow writers are so important.
A little over a year ago I meet Nick Valentino (writer of the Thomas Riley steampunk novel) on myspace and through him I started to work with Echelon Press on my first novella 'What a Way to Start the Day'. All it took was for one person to believe in me, and in the space of 1 year I've had six eshorts published.
I know eventually I'd get published, but due to one person, it happened so much quicker and now I work with a bunch of people who all have faith in me.
