More on Self-Publishing: Chapter PLEASEFORTHELOVEOFGOD, EDIT!

May 27, 2013

The other day I wrote a post called “The Self-Publishing Myth”. For those interested, it can be found here. It turned out to be quite a  popular post, which of course made me happy. That said, when I re-read it to myself I realized that I accidentally downplayed something pretty important — editing. Here’s the […]

The Self-Publishing Myth

May 22, 2013

Okay, I’m going to be perfectly honest here: There is one myth going around about self-publishing vs. trade-publishing that I am tired of reading. Seriously tired of it. So today I am going to give it to you straight: No, self-publishing a book is NOT an automatic death-knell for any writer who wants to be trade […]

My Top Five Reasons for Self-Publishing

February 21, 2013

There seems to be a general attitude among many (read: not all), in the professional writing community that those authors who self-publish are “giving up”, “lazy”, or simply “not talented enough to make it in the real publishing world”. Miraculously, none of these reasons came into play when I made my particular decision on the matter, […]

Short Commentary on Penguin and Self-Publishing

November 18, 2011

I recently posted that Penguin is going into self-publishing. I have since deleted that post, as I put it up without proper research. I apologize for this, and plan to look into it in more depth before posting any more on the subject. Thank-you and I apologize for any confusion this might have caused. ~ […]

My Self-Publishing Adventure: Day Circling Limbo

September 29, 2011

In my last blog, I told you about the amazing SCBWI conference I attended last weekend, culminating in every unpublished writer’s dream: a manuscript request by an editor. I was all EEE then and, don’t get me wrong, I’m still all EEE now. Off and on anyway. See, there’s this annoying thing that writers have […]

My Self-Publishing Adventure: Stepping-Stones Day

September 19, 2011

Today I was thinking about all the things I have done over the last two months to gain a presence online, and I realized that my original point in working so hard in the first place has been almost lost in the craziness of my self-publication adventure. But in the end, after all is said […]

The Infamy of Self-Publishing

September 16, 2011

Lately I’ve been reading some book reviewer’s message boards, in the name of research you know, and I’ve noticed quite a negative view of self-published books abounding therein. Now, I have been as aware as anyone that self-publication isn’t exactly seen through rose-colored literary glasses by many in the industry, but I have been under […]

My Self-Publishing Adventure: Day Sequel !

September 15, 2011

OK, so my title is a bit of a backwards oxi-moron. I am aware of that. I’m too psyched-up on my new Children’s Book Review showcase (and hopped-up on Red Bull and Frappuccinos… that too), to care today. Besides, it works in a backwards-Morgan-Marshall’s-world kinda way. See, today I started really digging into Escape from […]

My Self-Publishing Adventure: Day BOOK TRAILER! (Part II)

September 7, 2011

Hi everyone! As promised, I’m writing the second and final installment on my experience with creating a book trailer. First, here is the link to view it on YouTube. It’s a very short video, concise as a book trailer should be. Long enough to spark interest and hit on vital plot points, but short enough […]

My Self-Publishing Adventure, Day EEE!

September 2, 2011

OK, so technically today wasn’t day EEE, it was yesterday. But since then I’ve been really busy readying the house for the kids’ return and the fall season. So now I’m finally taking a quick break to blog to you all about my awesome, exciting day yesterday. What happened, you might ask? Did I get […]
