A friend and great up-and-coming best-selling author, John Ling (he has a thriller out right now called The Blasphemer, available at Amazon), once asked me to write a piece about my experiences self-publishing. At the time I was a little daunted, and not a little bit perplexed: I had no successful experience as a self-published author. Sure, I had put something on Kindle (an early error-ridden and first draft version of Vanguard Newborn) but my efforts had been dilittante-ish at best.
Since that belittling realisation, which both embarrassed me and motivated me to clean-up VN and make it a darker, more interesting story, things have progressed in leaps and bounds. Vanguard Newborn was finally ready for publishing (without going to an editor!) at which time I decided that the title was not ideal and promptly renamed the book Rhesus A. Actually, the full title is Rhesus A – a Vanguard Newborn.
