Hi guys

| ZanzibarCoins

So, to start, I am sorry that I haven't been on in a while. I know that a lot of you out therewatch for active bloggers, and I know that I have been failing at thatrecently.You'd think that being stuck at home would give me more free time, but instead I have more to do than ever. The main reason I have been not very active on here is because I have been working on another type of writing...

The reason I have been so busy, is because I have been finishing up my very first ever novel! I have been working on the final stages of editing, and now it's almost done, and will soon be published! It has been taking up all of my time lately, but it is so exciting. Although a little daunting at the same time. :) I am publishing it through Amazon,because Ican't afford an agent right now lol. If any of you enjoy reading stories about epic adventures, superheroes, and space travel, then I'd really appreciate it ify'all would give it a read once it's published! :) I started writing it when I was 14, and finished thebook when I was just 15, and thepast year I've been editing it and rereading it with the help of my wonderful grandparents. I've been published before, but only in magazines (The Numismatist and Highlights), so this is a really big milestone for me. I've been dreaming ofhaving a published book for as long as I can remember. :) This book is the first in the series, and I am super excited to get it out there. When it is officially published, I will lety'all know! (It is goingthrough the final stages of formatting and whatnot right now.)

If any of you on here,reading this, are authors, do you have any tips about getting the word out there about your book? Or any tips in general would honestly be appreciated. Thanks!

You canexpect a blog post soon! :)

You should not be shouted down for posting your status as long as it is a short one time update! Did you ad any Numismatic's to your book - say coins and currency of the empire? Gold press latinum like Star Trek?

So, I received some comments yesterday saying that I was abusing the ANA site by posting this blog. I am sorry if I offended anyone on here by posting about my book. My main goal with this blog post was to explain why I was gone for so long, and to ask for any tips from y'all, since I know you have more experience than I do. I am sorry if it came across like I was trying to sell my book to you. That was not my intention, and I apologize. I was really excited, since this has been a big dream of mine for a long time, and that may have led me to say the wrong thing. I hope I have not offended anyone or made anyone mad at me! I promise I wasn't trying to use the blog site like "eBay", and I wasn't trying to "[get] free advertisement from the ANA". Sorry again! ~ZC :)

Good luck. Sounds action packed. A nice escape book for these times. Good luck.

Thank you so much! :)

I'm not an author, and I don't play one on TV (a little spin-off of the original doctor joke, funny, right? anyone? *chirping of crickets muffled by face masks due to covid19), however, I will say, good luck, and don't let Amazon screw you! Too bad user Coin Lady left.... she was an author of multiple books from what I've heard....

Though I am not an author per se, I do enjoy writing. I love telling stories, especially stories involving numismatics. I have been published several times in PAN's publication, "The Clarion" and a single article in the CSNS publication, "The Centinel." Congratulations on your first book. Will it be offered for Kindle?

Thanks a lot! I don't know if it will be offered for Kindle, I haven't actually thought about that yet lol.

Love epic adventures, superheroes, and space travel (sounds like the Guardians of the Galaxy). Please let us know when your book is up on Amazon. I am very impressed you would take on such a challenge at such a young age.

I love Guardians of the Galaxy. Both 1 and 2.. Who hear can argue with the wisdom dispensed by Groot and Rocket? I also just learned that Nebula was a Dr. Who Companion. You have excellent taste in movies.
