WHY I CHOSE TO INDIE (SELF) PUBLISH

Depending on who you ask, there either is or is not still a stigma surrounding self-publishing. The “is” people will tell you that your writing has not been vetted by the proper people, that it has not been through the rigorous editing process. You are an unknown quantity, and only certain people are qualified to… Continue reading WHY I CHOSE TO INDIE (SELF) PUBLISH

THE MID-YEAR CHECK-IN

Time. It keeps passing, no matter how many times I take hold of the hourglass and demand the sands stop running. It just won’t listen to me. It’s fine, though. I’ll take my revenge by getting older and older, and when time no longer recognizes me… uh… well, it will keep passing. That’s just what… Continue reading THE MID-YEAR CHECK-IN

JUNE IS AUDIOBOOK MONTH (AND OTHER TRUE STORIES)

June is Audiobook Month, and Comedy of Terrors is NOW DISCOUNTED!

Wow, can you believe we are already almost halfway through another year? Time flies when you’re sitting on your keister staring at a screen watching YouTube videos when you’re not at JOB. Or commuting to and from JOB. But more on that later. The first thing to announce is so important there is actually a… Continue reading JUNE IS AUDIOBOOK MONTH (AND OTHER TRUE STORIES)

COMPARISONITIS AND IMPOSTER SYNDROME

There are a couple of common issues in the writing community: Comparisonitis and Imposter Syndrome. Let’s talk about those for a sec, shall we? (No, this is not a “woe is me” kind of post. It’s just a thing I keep seeing cropping up and want to share my irrelevant opinion.) Comparisonitis is the writing… Continue reading COMPARISONITIS AND IMPOSTER SYNDROME

SOCIAL MEDIA FOR THE ANTISOCIAL

I’m on Facebook. I’m on Twitter. I’m even on Instagram. I don’t particularly enjoy any of these. There is a widely-known (or publicized, at any rate) rule that an author must have a social media presence. That is how the author remains “relevant” to society at large. Heaven forbid someone cease to be “relevant” but… Continue reading SOCIAL MEDIA FOR THE ANTISOCIAL

LYING, AND THE LIARS THAT LIE ABOUT LYING

I don’t really have much to report this month. Comedy of Terrors has sold a few more copies (I’m in two more libraries, one in audio format!) but beyond that, I’m still in limbo. Feeling much less “bleah” about it, so that’s a plus. I get flashes here an there, but no solid ideas have… Continue reading LYING, AND THE LIARS THAT LIE ABOUT LYING

THE WOES OF A WRITER

One thing I hate when it comes to writing advice, as I know I’ve said here before, and the one thing I refuse to do when talking about writing myself, is to claim that every writer’s journey is the same. For every generalized truth, there are any number of exceptions. In the world of advice,… Continue reading THE WOES OF A WRITER

HELLO AGAIN, WORLD!

The previous incarnation of this website had to be eliminated. I switched to a new web host, and although the WordPress documentation claimed that “migrating is simple,” apparently I’m dumber than a not-yet-compiled code. (I don’t even know what that term means!) As time permits, I will try to go back into the past and… Continue reading HELLO AGAIN, WORLD!

YET ANOTHER GOALS POST

(See what I did there? Yup–it’s the same old joke, told for the seventy billionth time!) Back at the end of 2019, I did a recap of the year and a prediction of what to expect in the year to come. I’d like to do that again, maybe even bringing in last year’s goals to… Continue reading YET ANOTHER GOALS POST
