Am I ever glad that self-publishing wasn't easy back in 2005, when I was writing my first novel, "The Jewel of Medina." Why? Because of that elephant in the room: the aspect of self-publishing that no one talks about.

And thanks again to Red Room for helping me to gain a wider audience for my blog posts by submitting my work to AOL/The Huffington Post. Lest you think I'm one of those writers who works for free, let me add that Red Room donates $100 to charity every time I publish -- and then they help me to promote my work.
It's just one more good reason why Red Room is my favorite writers' hang-out.
