Baby Needs a New Pair of Everything

The Bosswoman's Village Upcountry
So, the wife is pregnant, I have three boys already, a little sister-in-law that wants to go to nursing school next year, plus aunts and uncles from my wife's village that think I'm a walking ATM. To get a bit of extra income last year, I helped the bosswoman get her two internet cafes up and running, but a little bit more cash flow would always be nice.  I currently have a day job in the non-profit sector that is enjoyable and allows me the opportunity to meet a wide variety of interesting people (from the very rich to the very poor).  What the hell, that's enough life experience to become a writer, isn't it?  At least I'm not living in my parents basement.

I've always enjoyed writing, but I never thought about actually trying to publish something.  After reading a few helpful websites, especially from Joe Konrath, I figured that I'd give it a shot.  Information is so easy spread in this day and age that the traditional barriers between the writer and reader have totally collapsed.  It is best to enjoy it while we can and try to publish some mid-level fiction for $0.99/e-book before the elites figure out how to take it all away from us.  Like any new venture that provides a service, there will be a lot of trying to figure out what it is readers want.

Thanks for reading, and I welcome any feedback, kudos, criticism, questions, hatemail, and even crazymail.
