So, who is Carrie Lowrance?
I have been writing since I was nine years old, apprenticing at our local newspaper in junior high, my community college newspaper, and writing for various websites. It wasn’t until 2015 that I started my professional author career.
Like you, I wasn’t exactly sure where to start. I knew I wanted to publish a book, but I wasn’t sure how I was going to go about it. On January 1, 2014, I saw a segment on CBS This Morning about an author named Jasinda Wilder who published her first book on the e-book publishing platform Smashwords.
I was astounded because I didn’t know anything about self-publishing at the time. That day I promised myself I would publish my book a year later. It was a bit of a learning curve, but a year and four months later, I published my first book of poetry, Lithium Dreams and Melancholy Sunrise.
The second book of poetry, The Safety Of Objects and a children’s book, Don’t Eat Your Boogers (You’ll Turn Green) followed the same year.
Since then I published my third book of poetry, Shadow Of Soul, and a second children’s book, Brock’s Bad Temper (And The Time Machine). I’m currently working on the first book in my new romance series.
My passion is to help other authors who are just starting out on their journey. The path to writing and publishing your first book is a scary, exhilarating and sometimes confusing experience.
This is why I am here to help you. I had so many questions when I published my first book and I made many mistakes. Since then I have learned a lot and am excited to pass my knowledge on to you. Some posts on the blog to help you take your first steps are:
I don’t want you to put off your dream of becoming an author another day.
Here’s to your author journey,
