Wishing for a Broadsword…

There are very few things that enrage me and make me want to inflict bodily harm on other people.

Heartbreaking reminder of why I write.

I’m an author. That means I write books and I hope that people not only read them, but that they enjoy them and can relate to the stories and characters.

Here’s the definition of an Indie Author from Joann Penn. At its most basic, indie means there is no separate publisher involved.

Bells and Whistles

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a quirky, speak my mind, no filter kind of woman.

Some people love it, some people hate it, but I am me and I don’t see the point in hiding or changing who you are to make others happy.

Loads of things have been going on with me. I’ll try to jot them all down and also give y’all the dates of some totally awesome stuff, you are not going to want to miss!

Wacky

Chaos and Censorship in the Indie World

The shit has basically hit the proverbial fan in the Indie Author World over the past few days!

Online retailers have started pulling Indie Author Books, people are losing books on their devices, authors are panicking, readers are furious…

Enlightenment

It’s been a whirlwind week.

To be honest, my life right now, doesn’t seem real. I kind of feel like I’m in a tunnel underwater, with my head all fuzzy, and my senses out of whack.

My debut novel released early (on Amazon) one week ago tonight. And it’s been nuts.

Utopia

It’s now 3 days after my “official” release of Alluring Turmoil and I am completely blown away by all that transpired this weekend.

I imagined I would do well, but I never in a million years imagined I would do what  I did in sales, the charts, and rankings.

Ugh… bad day turned around?!?!

My day today started off pretty shitty.

I uploaded my book to Createspace last night to get an idea of what it will cost in paperback and it completely messed my formatting up.

Apparently any book over 400 pages has to be formatted completely different for print than for ebooks. Who knew?

Not me for sure! Continue reading
