I have had short stories published in both print and digital anthologies. I have also self-published a novel. The story itself was nearly two decades in the making. Crafting the illustrations, laying out the book pages and uploading the file for print-on-demand was a year in the making. Presentation matters to me. Detail matters to me. Besides a well-reviewed story, I received praise for the production quality: well-edited and good illustrations. It was satisfying on all counts.
