: Cape Gazette ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT FRIDAY. APRIL 6 - MONDAY, APRIL 9. 2012 95 Delaware Tech grad' book available on Amazon Kindle Belisle short stories debut on eReader By Cassie 6otto Special to the Cape Gazette Rehoboth Beach resident Mark Belisle has published his first book, making it available on the Amazon Kindle. A graduate of Delaware Tech- nical & Community College, Belisle is using Amazon to get his book, "Sun- flowers," into the hands of Kindle readers. He said anyone who wants to publish a book can do it: all one has to do is up- Mark Belisle load the book in a Microsoft Word file. "They basically do all of the work for yo.u," he said. To promote his book, a collec- tion of short stories, Belisle is re- lying on word of mouth, a Face- book page and a biog. "I'm going to see how well it does through mainly word of mouth," he said.

"I decided to come to Delaware Tech to study commu- nications because I realized that the pharmaceutical life is not for me," he said. "I've always been a creative person." Still, he plans to stay at Beebe until he figures out his next move. "I'm so thankful for my job at Beebe," he said. So what exactly is his dream career? Anything where he can write.

His family has always been supportive, ever since he discov- ered his talent for writing in jun- ior high. Belisle also receives a lot of support from his girlfriend. "The amount of support I have received is remarkable," he said. Morley has no doubts that Belisle can be a very successful writer. "He's already successful.
