Some Things they don’t tell you about being an Indie Author

Some Things they don’t tell you about being an Indie Author




I wish I could say that I thought long and hard before deciding to become an indie author but then I’d be lying.  I really did it as I do a lot of things in my life, on a whim.  I had a book, I had it edited and I really didn’t feel like spending a year shopping it around to publishers facing rejection after rejection.  So I paid for a cover, did some formatting and one last edit and then hit upload.  I don’t regret it, but here are some things I wish I had known before heading down this path.

The Right Book at the Right Time

The Right Book at the Right Time





It really can make all the difference in the world, reading the right book at the right time.  Maybe it was luck, or maybe it was just people knowing enough about me to know what I would like, I don’t know.  It could even be a case of just seeing what I wanted to see where I wanted to see it.  I don’t know what it was, all I know is that the last two books I read happened to be the perfect books at the perfect time.

What am I Without the Bruises?

What am I Without the Bruises?

Made A Video, Don’t Know Why

Made A Video, Don’t Know Why

Maybe it’s a matter of thinking about weather or not I could do something instead of if I should do something, or just because I wanted a break from writing but I managed to upload a video.  Anyone who knows about self hosting will know that this is a kind of tricky thing, they will also know that this is kind of a bad idea (RIP bandwidth), but I wanted to give it a try.  This will probably be the only video I host here and I’ll probably delete it.  It was more of a test case than anything else, so please let me know how it works in the comments.

Heading to War Means Good Music

Heading to War Means Good Music

I try my best not to follow the news, but the news seems to follow me.  As hard as I try to stay out of everything I just can’t.  Maybe it’s the reddit posts that make it to the front page (and the fact that I can’t be bothered to make an account and unsubscribe from defaults), maybe it’s my Facebook feed full of articles, maybe it’s a morbid interest, but I can’t avoid it.  I used to follow the news a lot closer but I got sick of it, it only made me anxious and worried and didn’t inform me like the news media is supposed to do.
