Thoughts and Questions on Series Numbering

Okay this is probably a rather dull topic for some of you, but it’s been on my mind as the proper launch of To Get Me To You draws nigh.  It is the first book in the series and is, obviously, properly number 1.  This is a no brainer.  Chronologically, Be Careful, It’s My Heart follows it, […]

Entitlement In Writer Culture

One of the first things I saw when I logged into Twitter this morning was a conversation between a writer friend of mine (who, incidentally, is also a professional editor and teaches workshops) and another writer who was essentially lambasting her (and all other professional writers) for not helping new writers.  Digging back through the conversation, […]

Introducing The Forge: Affordable Book Finishing

This little brainchild resulted (as many do) from an off the cuff remark I made to Susan the other day.   Things were looking iffy at work about funding for a project during the next fiscal year (which ended up working out), and I was brainstorming additional ways of generating some income.  I have already […]

Draft2Digital: An Alternative To Smashwords

As I’ve been dipping my foot back into the self publishing pool, some things have gone exactly as expected or better.  Amazon and Barnes and Noble got Riven up within 24 hours.  And I got through the Smashwords meatgrinder really quickly, with only one small detail I had to change with a bit of random garbage […]

Midweek #ROW80 Check-in and Amazon’s Going To Monetize Fanfic?

So the Hammer and Gobsmacker are still working their way through Riven.  I’m not bleeding too badly yet.  There’s nothing being mentioned that I didn’t kind of expect. While I’m waiting on that, I’m up to my ears in historical research, dipping into all kinds of interesting stuff, figuring out what I want to keep, what […]
