My name is Tom and I've just joined this community. I'm really looking forward to meeting you and talking about writing, publishing, promotions and more.
I've been writing for 30+ years and have recently published my first novel, "The Stones of Andarus" which is Book One in The Devenshire Chronicles series. It is currently available through Amazon.
Again, thanks for having me and I look forward to exploring this site.

Welcome. Good luck with your novel.
I looked up your book on Amazon. It sounds interesting, but I'm wondering if you could be a bit more specific in your summary. Just some random advice.
