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
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)
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.

This blog turned a year old at some point last month, but more importantly, October means that National… Continue reading WRIMO IS COMING
Hey, look — it’s an image! Just don’t get too excited, I’m still doing it wrong. WRITING IN PUBLIC After the last entry’s whine session, I decided to kick my own butt and re-join the world of Camp NaNoWriMo. I don’t recall offhand, but I think this might be the first time I have done… Continue reading IT’S COMING… REALLY
Before you ask, the answer is no. I do not have the hang of this “writer” thing. I have tried, and failed, to post regular blog entries. I do not have the motivation to edit Comedy of Terrors, nor have I worked up the energy to start a new book. (I had intended to write… Continue reading I’M DOING IT WRONG
So… hi there. Here in the northern hemisphere of the globe, Spring is about to… well, spring.
