I’m thrilled to announce that the second edition of my 2008 novel, Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal, is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com in both paperback and Kindle. To quote an old saying, “I didn’t know what I didn’t know” back then; accrued knowledge over the past eight years has led me to produce the book I’ve always wanted. From the exceptional formatting and cover design to dialogue and editing tweaks, I’m proud to release this new version under the Writestream Publishing LLC imprint.
Being an author of a well-received, 5-star rated novel increased my level of credibility and ultimately brought me to this wonderful moment, where I am a co-founder of a thriving, independent publishing company with a woman who is not only a dear friend, but a sharp, savvy, and trustworthy entrepreneur.
Since 2008, I have ghostwritten and edited multiple books and consulted with clients on the independent publishing process. Establishing Writestream Radio in 2013, followed by Writestream Publishing in 2015 with Lisa Tarves has been both a joy and a learning experience. I love that I get to work from home, be a voice for others, and help them achieve their publishing goals. No matter how many times we do it, I’m exhilarated when I finally hold the finished product in my hand — whether a client’s work or my own.
I had no idea when I sat down to write all those years ago that I would make so many good friends and contacts, become an internet radio host and ghostwriter, and attract the right business partner. It feels amazing!
For those of you who have read and enjoyed the original version, this is a second edition, not a sequel. The story and characters remain the same; I’ve just improved some elements, added a foreword, enhanced the formatting (with the help of the excellent Matt Margolis), and created the perfect cover design (thanks to the talented Kia Heavey). For those who have never read it, I hope you like it and look forward to your feedback!
