Salutations, all. I'm a former Kindle owner (dropped the thing from a great height and busted it), so I have to get a new one. More importantly, I guess, I'm a writer. I started published in 1973, mostly sf... though I have also done fantasy, mysteries, mainstream and horror. I'm a graphic artist and web designer by trade (retired, now), but writing has always been close to my heart as you might guess. I have had some POD things published, and a children's book in 1992. My intent here is to learn from you all, and start publishing my OP stuff, both print and web-based, as e-books. My web site is http://www.alsirois.com, so stop by if you've a mind to. Shameless Self-promotion Department: I am also an illustrator, both for interiors and covers. You can see some of my work here: http://www.alsirois.com/ArtAndDesign/illustration.html.
