Indie Publishing: 2,119 Days and Counting…

TweetDecember 19th, 2010. That was when I published my first book, The Digital Sea.  I’d shopped the novel around to agents and editors, receiving lovely rejections along the way, before deciding to jump into the indie pub revolution with both feet.  There were a lot of reasons for my conversion: control over the end result, […]

Because I like to […]

Recommended Reading List: Spring 2011

TweetI love learning about what other people are reading. I’m always in search of a good book, regardless of genre. If you’ve met me in person before, and if we’ve had any length of discussion, you’ve probably had me ask what books you’re reading. It’s up there as one of my top favorite conversation starting […]

The Practice of Failure
