View Full Version : Thinking up titles! My secret weakness! Curse them, how did they know?

If I kept lurking and reading threads without registering, the Powers What Am would probably have been justified in charging me rent. Therefore, I thought I'd do this properly. And then... continue to lurk and read threads, because it's what I do.

I'm M. Chandler. I live in Seattle and I write on the internet. No, seriously: my writing is all available on my website for free. To make a long story short, the books on my website are my first efforts, my 'trunk novels'; it's just that, instead of putting them in a trunk, I put them on the internet.

I also offer paperback copies/PDFs for sale through Lulu for anyone who might like to have my work in a different format. It's worked surprisingly well for me so far.

I'm currently at work on two things: the last two short pieces for an upcoming collection and another book. I plan to shop the book to agents once it's all finished and edited and polished up, assuming that I think it's good enough to show around. If not, it goes on my website and on Lulu, and I try again! :cool:

And now, back to lurking. I do it so well.

Welcome to AW. Hope you enjoy your stay with us.
How do you like your popcorn?

If you go to the bottom of the page to the 'forum jump' you can scroll down and find all the areas of this place. After you post 50 posts you can use the SYW areas to get help there. The password for some of the areas is…..vista. A word to the wise, it would be a good idea to participate first in helping others before you think about posting your own work. After you have been around here for awhile, then post something of your own for help. Good luck.
