The Overnight Success Myth and Other Stories…

I’m not sure why this has come up now but I’ve found myself discussing the hard work aspect of becoming a writer quite a lot over the past week.

Also, with the attitude of some independent authors and the hardening attitute among readers it has caused, I am beginning to wonder whether self publishing is quite such a smart option. It’s definitely right for me at the moment, but long-term smart? I’m not sure.

Run with me on this, eventually the two thoughts will connect.

Is ‘indie’ the new ‘crap’?

Is there still a stigma attached to self publishing?

As an indie music fan, I have always associated the word ‘independent’ with quality. People who have ploughed their own furrow, refused to compromise their artistic integrity and done their own thing.

A Confession About Research and The Wrong Stuff…

OK, quite a few of you kind souls have bought the second part of the K’Barthan Trilogy, The Wrong Stuff. So I thought I ought to come clean about the research behind the book.

If you want to find out what I look like the Bury Free Press did a bit about my book. Feel free to have a shufty but please note my thighs aren’t really that big.

Mwahahahhargh!

Happy? Smug? Ecstatic? Yeh! I’ve just signed off the paperback proof of The Wrong Stuff.

On a slightly, but only slightly, less manically gleeful note. Simon Royale over at the esteemed Indie Reads has been kind enough to interview me.

On a downer — well, we like a contrast — The Wrong Stuff is being panned on Page99.com
