On August 8th, 2017, just three days ago as of this writing, I uploaded the first issue of my new ongoing monthly oceanic adventure serial, Blue Daunia, to the Amazon Kindle store. Here’s the scary part though: it’s my first-ever anything in terms of published work. To be quite honest, I am a bit nervous about the whole affair. Not because I feel I have done anything wrong, but inasmuch as I am worried whether I really did anything right! This website, brand-new as of today August 11th 2017, will serve two purposes. First, it will chronicle my trials and tribulations as a brand-new indie author embarking upon a potentially life-changing journey. Secondly, it will, in the future, serve as my website as an established author (this requiring optimism, forward thinking, hard work, luck and hope).
Oh, and, by the way. . . here’s the link to my Amazon Author’s Page, which at this time is just a bit sparse in terms of shoppable content, but bear with me, and check back here frequently, as I seek to change that and keep you posted about the journey I’m on to get that goal accomplished.
So, if you’re an aspiring indie author and you’re wondering what it’s like to go through this process, or if you’re well underway and just want to read some posts to see if your mind-set matches that of someone who has already been through it, then hop aboard. I’ll be talking about everything from the steps I took to how I felt during them, to things like dialogue, action scenes, compelling characterization, self-doubt, discipline, and so very much more. Oh, there will be personal ramblings as well. . . observations about movies and sandwiches and paperclips and whatnot, and as I get those typed up, I’ll stick everything under the tab “That BLOG Thing” and you can find a list of categories over to the right of any given post within it.
