Hello! Author from Northwest Illinois

Hello,

I'm Terri Reid and I'm an author of two paranormal mysteries - "Loose Ends" and "The Ghosts of New Orleans." One of your current members was kind enough to tell me about your forum and I am so grateful to her.

I live in Northwest Illinois. I've had two e-books published since August 2010. Prior to writing novels I ran my own marketing/public relations company, but with this economy many of my loyal clients were forced to cut back. It was a blessing in diguise, because I could finally "justify" spending my time on writing the stories that had been living in my brain for years.

I have two "books" (more like booklets) about local ghost stories, that are sold through our Historical Society and all of the proceeds go to them.

I'm also writing a non-fiction book - an "Everything" book about Living Off the Grid. It's a contract job - but I think eventually they will publish it through e-books.

It's nice to be here. I can't wait to get to know you!

Terri

I will be sure to check those forums out! I have to say how impressed I have been by the whole community of e-book readers and authors. They are so willing to lend a hand and guide you in the right direction.

I just picked up Loose Ends at Amazon.
Thought this might help others to do the same.

Good to have your company, Terri. Just for interest, I wonder if you know Richard Crowe of Chicago Ghost Tours. We met at a parapsychology conference in the seventies in what was then Yugoslavia and lost touch over the years. Glad to see you here. Good luck with the books. Best wishes. Neil
