My First Published Vampire Story (ebook)

      Hello everyone. I want to take this moment to thank you for stopping by for a visit. I'm Paula Hardin and I write paranormal fantasy, steam-punk, and contemporary. I have some great news!! Forever Lost is my first published short story e-book and it can be found on Amazon, and Barnes and Nobles.
     Just a heads up for people who don't know this, you don't need a Kindle, or Nook to read a ebook. You can download it to your computer with a special free app from Amazon or Barnes and Noble. You can also download it to an ipad, ipod, iphone, or any android cell phone with a kindle app which is a free download.
     I've been writing since 2000 and I've learned so much over the years. Enough to realize I didn't know a thing about writing. Oh I could tell a story, but it was a mangled mess of words. (laughing) I didn't know what POV was so just imagine the head hopping, twisted sister I was putting together. The thing is...I never gave up. If your a new writer, I'm here to tell you. You can do it!
     I actually decided to self publish this short story and by having it out there and have strangers buy it and leave feedback it's such a rush. It sucks the air right out of my lungs. All my hard work, the picking myself up off the ground and dusting myself off. Not to mention the many tears I shed by being turned down. In all, it just wasn't my time.
