On Friday, I gave two weeks notice at my office job. I will be pursuing writing full time. I won’t lie. It was difficult to walk away from a paycheck. It was the first job I have ever quit. However, everything else about the decision was easy and the reason why might surprise you.
For my first novel Tied, I reserved my writing time for weekend mornings. I got up at 6am on Saturday and Sunday and wrote for a several hours. My first draft took eight months. For my second novel, Vermin, I’m doing it differently.
As a new author, nothing so far has been more elusive than the all mighty review. Or should that be the sale?
Last week, I ran a free promotion on Tied. I did a lot of preparation and had high hopes. As promised, here are my results.
Well, soon it will be on. At midnight tonight, my first free giveaway for Tied will go live. And there were a lot of details to arrange.
I wrote back in November 2015 that I don’t like free promotions. Well six months later, I’ve changed my mind. Here’s why.
What new novelists (and seasoned ones too, I’ll bet) haven’t thought at least once how nice it would be to have their newest book become a bestseller right off the hop? I know I have.
A while a go I wrote about whether being self-published is the same as being published. The next question I ask myself on a regular basis is: am I a writer? Are you?
I’ve been going hard on the social media and blog posts for the past six months. It’s taking its toll on me. Here’s what I’ve decided to do.
After spending months in production and promotion mode, I am finally beginning my second novel. It’s great to get back into it, but will I do things differently?
