Since self-publishing Medea as Victoria Bell on June 4, 2015 I have prepared 3 novels and 2 story collections for self-publication using CreateSpace.com. These five books should be available on Amazon.com as early as next week. I'm just waiting for the proof copies to arrive in the mail, as I have learned the value of actually having a hard copy in hand before okaying a book being made available- that was lesson one from Medea.
These are the three novels that will be available later this month:
There is a sequel to The Archetypes and a third Miss Peculiar's Haunting Tales in the works.
I am also working with a graphic artist who is designing a cover for the first book in another series I've written. The cover will feature the house that inspired the novel. I have been in love with this particular house since I was a little kid. I was born in Northampton, Massachusetts and grew up in Easthampton, Massachusetts. My graphic artist went to the house to get a photograph and is developing a cover using that photo. I am so excited to keep my projects local to western MA. This area has a rich history in literature. It's nice to be a writer/author working and living here my entire life.
I'd like to just insert a thank you to my big sister, Lynnmarie May, who is also a writer and who has always been supportive of my wanting to write.
I'd also like to thank my daughter, Kelly, who also writes. I've written for her since she was a little girl- children's stories, adolescent stories and now adult stories. She is my biggest fan and my hugest supporter. I just want to say that I am so very proud of her for her own literary accomplishments. She is a magnificent and unique writer in her own right. You rock, Kelly Buffum!
