Hello world, my name is Tania L Ramos and I’m an aspiring writer, which doesn’t pay the bills, and I’m a registered nurse, which does pay the bills.  I’ve been writing since Ms. Ruben’s creative writing class in nineth grade over twenty years ago.  Once I was exposed, I fell in love.  My lifelong dream was always to be a writer, but I figured it was the same as saying, “I’m ging to be a movie star when i grow up.” I put my dream on the backburner and went to my second choice, medicine, well the medical field.  I was an EMT-B for almost a decade in Los Angeles, then went on the get my nursing license in San Bernardino County. 

     After taking a leave from work, I decided to start writing again.  I finished one book and didn’t have the nerve to send it in to a traditional publsihing house, so I self-published through www.bookemon.com . After finishing my first book I got stoked to writing and immediatley started my second book.  I decided to step up the process this time and go into independent publishing through www.iuniverse.com .  This blog is about my journey as a new author into the world of publishing.  Maybe i’ll make it big, maybe my mom will be the only person to buy the book.  Who knows? But this is my story, and maybe it will help other people who are sittng at home wondering if they should press the power button on the computer and start writing that novel.  I will be frank and blunt at times, but I will always be honest. 

Thank you for reading my blog.

  3. Congrats on going from aspiring author to published with one book already! I seem to be hopping back and forth over the finish line myself – my culprit tends to be trying to put a full and final “the end” on things. I also admire your bread and butter – I can’t even bear to look at the needle and whatnot when I donate blood. 🙂

  4. I reviewed your book! Check it out here: http://wp.me/p2s9cG-6k

    • I loved it Michelle. Thank you for your honesty, and I found it great that you didn’t like Jack Silver for his actions, most people didn’t like Travis so that was a bit of a twist with your thoughts on the topic. Honestly, I had never seen it from that point of view. Amazing how readers see things differently. Well, I enjoyed everything you wrote and in my defense, I added the fluff so it wasn’t so bleak all the time. Even I had to have a post traumatic therapy session after finishing the book. 😉 And I had separation anxiety after what happened to Jack. Seriously, I polished off a bag of cookies and watched Titanic to get my mind off it.
