In today’s episode I examined a few articles discussing particularly authors’ costs of self-publishing their books, in particularly focusing on a few that had exorbitantly high costs and at least one egregious case of someone getting taken advantage of.
Amazon announced a change in how they handle payouts for books borrowed Kindle Unlimited (KU)/Kindle Owner Lending Library (KOLL) and the main stream media went crazy…crazy spreading misinformation for the win! Let’s look at what’s really going on and why this could be a good thing before poking fun at the […]
For something a little different, I used the Spreaker Android app to record this episode while walking the track and discussing how exercise can help with creativity and ways of drawing inspiration from the activity and location.

Now that I’m working on Deviations revision (mostly…), this episode is all about the three main characters in the story, as well as touching on the importance of knowing your characters with greater depth that may ever seem to appear in your novel.

Fair warning, I wasn’t feeling well while recording so I am a bit slow at the start and may have rambled a […]
Another extempore episode this week thanks to all the overtime. More Aisuru updates, including the hardback finally being available and that hinted at Giveaway, some quick remarks on Indie ReCon, and a little internal look at dealing with professional envy.

This week I share Aisuru’s most of the first week trickling sales numbers and talk about my search for reviews. Also share some news about the proofs and my giving in to Goodreads.
I am now officially a published author! Aisuru leaked out a bit early in a few places, though official it doesn’t come out until March 27th. Meanwhile my way overly tired self is reviewing some of the things I’ve learned from this first publication experience so far.
