NOTE: Comments here are closed.
The current state of affairs regarding publishing literary works, in my humble opinion, is one of a dying business model. Traditional publishers view the self-publishing world as a disorderly upstart. This is a safe position as long as the James Pattersons and the Stephen Kings line their pockets with guaranteed sales. Traditional publishing used to pluck writers from obscurity, build their audience and then glean the rewards of that effort in conjunction with their fostered author. Currently, the audience and rewards must be present before landing a contract allowing a new author to create a living from writing. The writer has to bring a marketing plan to the publisher — what exactly are the publishers doing?
To that end, I am embarking on setting up an indie publishing company: Introvert PRESS.
This will be a foray into the unknown. It will be an effort to support writers. I will be doing…

The Magician’s Curse kept me turning page after page – I wanted to see what happens next.
Book Cover for ‘The Magicians Curse’ by Author Linda G.Hill
I gave Linda Hill’s The Magician’s Curse four stars on Goodreads and Amazon. This was an entertaining read. Oftentimes, if you’ve read as many books as I have, you’d be able to predict what’s going to happen next. With The Magician’s Curse, I couldn’t. That’s what kept me turning page after page – to see what the characters will do next, what will happen to them. It’s certainly different from the typical books I read and a great palate cleanser. It’s not cookie-cutter or formulaic at all. I don’t normally read books with young characters (18/23) anymore, but I made an exception for this. I’m glad I did because the heroine and hero (Herman and Stephen) are mature for their age. I’d recommend…

As an author, I am always curious about what motivates people to read. I’ve done posts before about how people choose books, about covers and colors and what you seek in a blurb, but this post poses a simpler question with perhaps an opportunity for more complex answers.
Why do you read?
Sometimes I read to learn, sometimes to go on an adventure in a far away place I will probably never get to in real life. Occasionally, I read because it is such a part of me. Whereas some people enjoy movies, music or the theatre, favourite sports or socialising with others, I like books. I love the feel of them, the scent of them, the way they make you feel like someone understands when no one else does.
Sometimes I read to improve my craft. There are so many reasons. I also love the feeling of finding a…

I think that you have to decide what you are doing when it comes to blogging. Like anything in life you can’t always focus on two activities at once. You have the act of producing posts and you have the networking aspect of blogging that requires you to find ways to get people to care you exist. You mold your blogging methods according to the platforms you are on and the rules they decide to employ at any given time. At some point you decide you want to “monetize” because everyone uses that word. If I had placed the word Monetize in my title I would have gotten 5,000 views from people looking for the next big secret… maybe I should go edit it.
I don’t use secrets or tricks when growing my blog. I simply network. I tried a few other platforms for boosting my numbers and the work never…
