Okay, I've had a short novel (novella?) sitting on my computer for a long time.  Have thought about submitting it, self-publishing or epublishing but haven't gotten too far.

I have an account on Lulu but I feel a little overwhelmed when I try to upload it and create a cover.  Personally, I don't feel like a technology newbie but for some reason this has me stumped and I end up not getting it published.

Has anyone published that can offer some steb-by-step guidance?

Chuck, I'm going to refer you to Sarah Nicolas, my resident writer friend. She might have some tips.

Chuck, what genre is it? What

Chuck, what genre is it? What is the length (in words)? What are your goals for it? Do you want to continue to try to publish other pieces?

Feel free to email me at sarah.nicolas.ya at; I'd be happy to talk to you about this in more depth.

Quick overview...the story is about the aftereffects of 9/11 on a man that loses his girlfriend on one of the planes.  The final draft (without any editorial input is 22000 words as calculated by MS Works..

Yeah, I want to get it published and hope to get other things published.  I write in a variety of genres; sci-fi, fiction, fantasy, poetry.
