Starting out with nothing...

So this is my first entry in my blog.

The title pretty much says it all. At least, it sets the tone for an aspiring author with little to no budget, and certainly no experience of the publishing world.

That's not wholly true. As I'm sure many other aspiring authors can also echo, rejection letters - and the generic text therein - constitutes something of a familiarity with that world. But, despairing of every being accepted into that heady, elite club, I decided to go the Amazon KDP route.

This blog will serve as a record - and a guide, if anyone is foolish enough to follow my footsteps - as to the course my writing career took.

So here goes nothing.
