Wow. It has been almost a year since my last post.
Kinda sad, but I have been a teensy bit distracted.
Will save it for the ebook.
The point is I am getting back into Social media, and with about 20 years of stories on my laptop that I am going to methodically start e-publishing on Smashwords, Amazon, etc.
I have a guy to format my work properly, then it's simply a matter for wrapping my head around the process of tagging, uploading and e-marketing and tax forms.... okay, well maybe not a simple matter, but I will get this set up and hopefully make a bit of coin from my literary efforts.
Over the past few year I have been carefully watching Joe Konrath and Barry Eisler have navigated the Northwest Passage of the Indie VS Big Six, and finally decided to take the plunge. The system is working and the reading audience is democratically deciding with their wallets what is being downloaded and read.
Damn cool beans, really.
So, I am going to 'be the monkey'. I'll get my feet wet with a half-dozen free short stories and then launch my two novels this fall.
If you are a writer still on the fence about Self Publishing, then download "Be the Monkey" by Joe Konrath and Barry Eisler.
As long as the power stays on, this is the new game in town.
