Time to be a little self-centered:
I am B.B. Morgan, self-published author, fan-girl, lover of sweets, and Level 45 Word Wizard (self-declared). I currently reside in the vast fields and hills of southern Illinois. I work part-time at a library, and I’m trying to spring my writing career into the fierce world of publishing. I am a graduate of Southeast Missouri State University (BA) and 7/8 of the way to my MFA in Creative Writing with Lindenwood University. (One quarter left!)
I decided to self-publish my first novel, Devil’s Blood, after repeated rejections that came with “it’s good, but not what I’m looking for” or “I like it, but I’m packed with projects.” I spent a good deal of time working on the craft of writing, practicing through fan-fiction and reading every book on writing in the library system, until I felt my book sufficiently well-written.
And so began my indie writing career.
I also like dogs, dragons, ice cream, yoga, sleeping in, coffee, Renaissance Fairs, themed parties, Harry Potter, video games, and D&D. A long term goal of mine is to be an editor. I’d like to start a small business after I’m finished with my MFA as a freelancing editor and work my way up to a small independent press. I enjoy giving feedback to beginning writers and helping draft and develop a story.
B.B. stands for Bazel Bell; no it is not my real name. I wish it were. I chose those initials because I liked how B’s looked on paper. When I donated my first novel to my library, they asked what the initials stood for, bibliographic record reasons. One internet search on B-names later, I had Bazel. “Bell” is a family name.
