Starting Out as an Indie Author

I’m switching over to the business end of writing for this week’s post, and showing a little love for fellow WIPpeteer (once a WIPpeteer, always a WIPeteer), incredible Beta reader, and awesome award-winning author Ruth Nestvold, who has a new craft book available. I was just going to click the ‘reblog’ button, but that wouldn’t let me pick this blog as a target so, instead, here’s a glimpse. You can find your way to the original …

Scary Stuff for Authors on Kindle Unlimited

I’m re-blogging this for any author currently enrolled in Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited program (and yes, I’m one). It’s very disturbing, and is causing me to take another look at where and how my books are handles. Think You Couldn’t Possibly Lose Your Amazon Publishing Account? Think Again.

Whirling on WIPpet Wednesday

What a whirlwind this past week has been! My brain is just buzzing. I’ve made mega-strides on getting EoD one step closer to Beta reading status. Those of you who have read the first two, if you’re interested in filling a Beta spot, please let me know. I foresee having this beast ready for reading by the end of the month. On the BiS front, I’ve started up a street team which is something I’ve …

Looking Forward on WIPpet Wednesday

Happiest of Wednesdays, one and all! You know, summer is busy for me. I make no apologies. And that’s why I’ve been somewhat absent of late. This month isn’t too bad, September and October will be hectic, and then things start to smooth out. Along with working my dog, going to Cow Camp, keeping up with projects around the farm, and life-in-general, I’ve been thrown eye-balls deep in editing/redrafting on both Edge of Darkness and Bound in …

Bound in Shadow in the Land of Tradition

Wednesday I mentioned I would give you the final wrap-up on the agenting of Bound in Shadow ~ The Coinblade Chronicles. A while back I wrote this post which summed up BiS~CBC‘s history, and my foray into the world of Traditional Publishing. Not my first time in that rodeo, but a lot has changed. And nothing has changed. *sigh* It’s still many hoops and much time with little result. Anyhow, if you want the background, …

Where's Driev? And Who Is He Anyhow?

I promised an update on Bound in Shadow ~ The Coinblade Chronicles, and what better time than now since it has found its way firmly back onto the center of my plate. I did a little research and it seems I began sharing bits of CBC for WIPpet Wednesdays in November of 2013. Holy Crap! Wow. Um… eek. Anyhow, the first post is Here if you want to see it. It’s the first book I’ve written …

Steve has recently released Born Of Hatred, book two in his series The Hellequin Chronicles (scroll to the bottom to see where you can pick them up, if you haven’t already. And if you haven’t, why not?). There was a time when Nathan Garrett was feared. When the mention of his name was enough to stop his enemies in their tracks. That time …

Voyage of the Indie Treader ~ Leaving the Harbour Part Duex

When last we saw the Indie Treader, she was tentatively hoisting sail and navigating her way out of the harbor. You would think she’d be well underway by now, conquering the open seas. Yeah, well, it’s a big, freaking harbor, let me tell you. That, and there were some blockades set up called The Holidays, and Evil Flu-like Energy Sucking Virus Thingy. And, on her maiden voyage, there are things to learn. Many. Many. Many. …
