Adventures in Writing: Being a Good Author Friend

I want all authors to take a deep breath. And then let it out. Take another and let it out. One more time, breathe with me.   I feel it’s been very difficult for some authors out there to be good author friends. Or, perhaps they are only good author friends to authors who fit …

Adventures in Writing: Social Interaction

I tend to be a Twitter focus-type. While I do post to Facebook, it’s most often an auto-post via my WordPress. …

A Penny for your Thoughts: I’m an Idiot

Beware of Scams: Cover Designers — Nicci Haydon

I’m sharing this because people need to know. There are so many out there willing to take advantage of a new author and it’s sickening. Authors need to step up more and share both the good and bad experiences with both self- and traditional-publishing. Whether it’s an editor who won’t get back to you, a …

Community Building and Conversation

Socializing within the Media One thing you’re supposed to try to do as an indie(independent) author is socialize with other authors and readers to get the word out, hoping that they’ll not only read your writing, but also leave a review. One of the hardest things it appears these days are getting reviews. I’ve had …
