So it’s been a few days since the last post and the hurtful comment mentioned within. The gist of it is, even though that person sucks for being so rude, I’m putting it behind me. And I’m certainly not going to stop writing. What I am going to do, as mentioned in my post where I took my first hiatus, is to stop putting so much stock in other people. Continue reading Learning to Live With Criticism

Since I had already written most of this out before my hiatus, I figured I’d post it. So…
The new edition of Dragons’ Myth is officially published (paperback. EBook coming July 1st), and that means I can explain the changes. This will have spoilers, so only read if you have read the previous edition or when you’ve finished the new edition. Or if you’re a weirdo who likes spoilers, you do you. Continue reading How the Third Edition of Dragons’ Myth is Different
After yesterday’s cover reveal turned out to be a huge flop, I’ve decided to take a hiatus from social media. With almost every exciting announcement, I end up very glum and wondering why I write, because basically no one reacts to my said posts. Continue reading Social Media Hiatus
I’ve been writing actively for three -ish years (although I published my debut way back in 2012), and honestly… I constantly had doubts. Constantly. With sales being basically non-existent, zero reviews, and having no social circle to help get the word out about my books, there was always a nagging thought in my head that I’m just a bad writer.
Well, I’m beyond excited to announce that yesterday, I noticed my very first review on Amazon! Continue reading My First Amazon Review!
Anyone who’s done a smidgen of research on the differences between self-publishing and traditional publishing would know that self-publishing takes a lot more effort. That’s not to say the traditional way doesn’t take effort, but once you get a publisher, it’s pretty much smooth sailing from there. There’s a whole team working for you, and you don’t really have to worry about marketing.
Self-publishing on the other hand Continue reading My Struggles as an Indie Author
Back when I published Dragons’ Myth, it was when CreateSpace was still a thing, and I chose the free ISBN option. Using the free ISBN meant that particular ISBN would be exclusive to CreateSpace. Therefore, I wouldn’t be able to take that file with that ISBN and go print my book elsewhere. That still applies now that CreateSpace merged with KDP. Continue reading The Third Time’s The Charm
This is what I was asked when I told someone that I was using a mug instead of the cup they offered because I didn’t like using single-use items. In this situation, it was a polystyrene cup I didn’t want to use. Continue reading Do You Want To Wash The Dishes?
There has most likely been many times in your life when you’ve been drawn to a price label that ends in 99, especially when it comes to 99-endings versus whole numbers. Seeing a pack of candy for $4.99, maybe a car for $29,999. Sometimes it’s even non 99-ending numbers, such as a house being sold for $239,900.
