This is going to become the post that no one ever sees, but since one needs to start somewhere, this here we are.
This site is a work-in-progress right now, and rather than go through the hassle of setting up some sort of landing page type of website which in turn blasts you out into a new tab (or window) to the blog (which is actually what you want to read), I figured I’d make the blog the landing page and let everything else link off of it. If you came here looking for something other than the blog, and also somehow ended up reading this post, then please accept my apologies and start clicking around until you find whatever it is you’re looking for.
For the rest of you, I’ll be updating this periodically as I begin my journey of self-publishing in the Kindle, nook, and iBooks world that so many have done before me. It’s a brave new world out there and this is an exciting time for writers, if not a little scary. While established guys like JA Konrath and Barry Eisler seem to have a good grasp on epublishing, us indie folks you’ve never heard of are learning by bruising our knuckles (and by reading how others have done things so we don’t have to make the same mistake — thanks!).
For now, I’m actually in the middle of editing one manuscript (though a few others await) and looking into getting artwork done, possibly hiring a professional editor (and/or reader), and considering the myriad questions and problems that are bound to arise as I stumble down this road. It’s exciting. It’s scary. It’s going to be fun.
And if I have time, I may even find time to post some writing tips, editing tips, and miscellaneous other things that are likely of more interest to writers than readers.
