Hosted by the Indelibles, Indie Life is a monthly feature on the second Wednesday of the month. This is a chance for indie authors to post about indie life, find each other, offer support, encouragement, news, helpful hints, and anything else that makes life as an indie author a little easier.
What happened to the year? It feels like I’ve blinked and the year is gone. And Christmas is right around the corner and I haven’t started shopping.
So I missed last month… bad me… BUT I was writing in NaNoWriMo and so I really don’t remember much of last month but the mad dash to 50k. ^_^ Pariah is going well, too and hopefully I can get it turned around for a May/June release. *crosses fingers*
I did an internet radio interview last night with Shannon Delany. If you want you can actually relisten to it here. (I think I sound like a guy and sound really young… I am not that young I swear. Lol) I was completely nervous the whole time though Shannon made the entire event easy and fun. I learned a lot from that.
I did a cover reveal without the use of a blog tour agency and that was an experience. I always thought a blog tour company was a must but apparently it’s not. There were a lot of really cool bloggers that were willing to post a cover reveal without bribery. ^_^ It was definitely a lesson learned.
I have a book release coming in January and I’m debating on a release day event or not. Budgets right after Christmas are tough and I’ll be lucky to squeeze enough out for my editor. Though if I did have the funds I should probably do a blog tour instead of a release day event… which one is better does anyone know?
There’s another release slotted for March too… good grief I feel busier than I probably am… I blame NaNo. I’m also tackling a Beta read for a fellow author but that is slow going. I’m hoping to carve out more time for that too.
Hm… apparently this month is the month of learning as I’ve learned a bunch of new tricks between posts. I’ve semi-mastered InDesign. I shouldn’t use the word master – I should probably say adequately proficient. Which of course thrills me to the bone. I love having that MUCH easier way of formatting books.
What has everyone else been up to?
