Now that I have my first novel Tied published as a paperback and ebook, I can see sales statistics coming online. But is that a good thing?
When I mention that I self-publish my novels, my credibility as a writer in the eyes of others seems to take a hit. At least that’s what it feels like sometimes.
There’s nothing wrong with using a line or two from a song in my novel, I thought. Fair use, and all that, right? Wrong. Dead wrong.
As I venture forth into self-publishing, I need to wear many hats. The question remains: What if I’m not good at a particular skill?
Adobe recently released an update to InDesign CC 2015 (11.2 to 11.3). Like a good, obedient user, I updated. Then the shit hit the fan.
I advocate writing every day. It’s important. But I also think not writing every once in a while is a good thing too, and here’s why.
Amazon is constantly looking for ways to increase sales. Now they’ve filed patents for “used ebooks” and other digital content. Umm, what?
Last week I received my proof copy of Tied. Apart from it being nice to look at and hold, the proof copy has a greater purpose.
I know many people can’t wrap their head around writing a novel. A year ago I was one of them. So many words. But let’s look at it another way.
CreateSpace said that it would take two weeks to deliver my proof copies after ordering them. Guess what was waiting for me after work?
