    Catch Up Review and What to Expect Next

    ‘ello, since it appears I missed the August review post, this will cover August and September. Also, I talk about what I have planned next. Finished up my Author Website in 10 Easy Steps series, and posted a review to help you easily access the information. I also talked about what to do if you are still overwhelmed by the website thing. Life happened. I lost someone close to me in August, and it derailed me. I’m back on track now. I was presented with many opportunities, which mean I will have less time to give this blog for a short while. The author memes, and encouraging notes, and indie…

    Bonus Randomness from Krista

    I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what I should write next. I have a series that needs one more book. I have the first book in a series ready to release but I’m not sure I want to be tied to it for the next little while. And I’d like to try something different like a romance, or something meatier like a full-length fantasy novel. So, do I go with my obligation to finish my series? Do I publish that first book and then feel obligated to work on that series? Or do I write what I want to? But you see, I would like my writing to make…

    Question about Marketing? Maybe I can help.

    ‘ello. As self-published authors (and even traditionally published authors) we have to market our work. If you are like me you find marketing to be the most difficult thing about being an author. But, if you have any questions, I am willing to pull on my network of fellow authors, and my skills at internet research, and see if I can find you an answer. So, comment below or contact me with your questions?

    Introducing Jason Stanley

    I am happy no announce this month’s Indie Spotlight: Jason Stanley. Website ~ Facebook ~ Amazon Please Note: Jason’s books are for adult readers. Here is what he has to say about himself: How can I write about a Black woman in the Los Angeles hood? I grew up there. Born to a single mother on welfare in the county hospital, we bounced around a lot; always in the hood and often in the government housing projects. Also, in an interracial marriage for thirty-five years, I’ve developed a perspective with some unique insights. The language in the hood changes almost daily, but the people . . . they remain exactly…

    Bonus Randomness from Krista

    What has been on my mind lately? A lot actually. But how does it relate to writing? Or websites? Or anything really? Life can get in the way. I know that is an odd way to see it. Our life should, after all, be our primary focus in life. Family, work, cooking, cleaning, hobbies, friends, other commitments. Doesn’t it feel like there are so many things pulling us away from what we want to be doing? This kind of leads into balance. Life is a balancing act. I feel like the elements of my life are a house of cards stacked on a shaky table. One wrong move brings the…

    Dare to be Indie by Lisa Swinton

    I got into writing on an accident/dare. Some friends formed a critique group and invited me to join in 2009. I’d never had aspirations to be a writer, but went to the first meeting with an idea and agreed to write a first chapter with the caveat that if I wasn’t any good, then they let me know and I’d leave them to write in peace without me. I didn’t want to waste their time or mine. The word came back that the writing was good, and they encouraged me to continue. The rest is history. The decision to go Indie came several years and conferences later. I’d watched author friends…
