Guest Post P. Q. Glisson

Today, I´m having the very first guest post on my blog. Another one of the bog firsts as blogger! I´m so excited about it, even more so because I´ve a very special someone over to do it: P.Q. Glisson, author of Her Sanctuary. She was kind enough to stop by and tell something about her and her work. To me it´s even more interesting as she is a self-published author. But now please welcome Phyllis Glisson!



Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by today.
Well, I guess I'll start by telling you a little bit about myself. I was born and raised in and around the Savannah, Georgia area. I went to public school until my mom pulled me out and enrolled me at Savannah Christian Preparatory School for my tenth grade year where I stayed until graduating in 1977. I immediately tried to go to college but my heart wasn't in it. So, after a couple of semesters, I got my first job as a cashier at the local Piggly Wiggly. I worked twelve hour shifts for about 7 months. I could go through all my work experiences but I don't won't to bore you. Let's just say I was in the banking industry for about 17 yrs until I ended up working for a local construction company until the housing market softened in 2008 and I was laid off. That got me painting. I painted pictures which you can view at: photobucket.com/phyllis959
I did that for about a year and then one day my daughter and I were brainstorming on story ideas for one of her books (she's unpublished as of yet) and I suddenly came up with the idea behind Her Sanctuary. She was to work on it with me but due to some personal issues, I ended up writing it myself. It was divine inspiration. It had to be. I had never written anything before but a few short stories for school and a poem here and there. Suddenly the words were flying out of my head. It was hard to get it all down. I would stay up until the wee hours of the morning writing. When I would wake up the next day, I went right back to it. Eight months and 336 pages later, I had a novel. A NOVEL!! I couldn't believe it!


Now what? Well, I researched and researched publishing companies and decided I would self-publish using a self-publishing company. You know the ones; you do all the work, they get all the profits? Yep, that's the one. But I can't say anything negative about the company. They did exactly what their contract said they would do. Luckily, my contract is non-exclusive so I can take my book and publish it elsewhere, reformat it for Kindle, which I did, or give it away, which I have, several times. I believe that if I have to give away a PDF copy in order to get a review out of it by a blogger or a reviewer, then I'm willing to do that. Sure, I lose the initial sale, but if it's a good review, it could lead to future purchases.
Well, enough about that. I would love to hear some questions or comments from any of you out there.
Thanks Tine, for asking me to visit today. :)



Thank you for stopping by!

HI Phyllis, just stopped by for moral support. Congrats on self publishing, many are going that route with it getting tougher to get into one of the big houses. Readers have access to more books now than ever before and that's a good thing. Best of luck with your promo and sales. Remember, we all attract what we think...YOU can do it!

Love the paintings, P.Q.! You are a multi-talented lady! I've had your book on my wish list for far too long. That list is out of control and seems to have taken on a life of its own. I need to get to your book soon!

Great blog, Christine!
