Meanwhile, I'm also working on the sequel to Mindguard , which will be set about five years after the events described in the first book. Collectively, the stories will be known as the Weixman Universe books.
I've stopped work on Skyborn as the story just didn't turn out the way I had initially envisioned it. I'm taking a step back and plan to tackle it from a different angle.
In other news, I've recently had the honor of being interviewed by fellow author David Neth for his website The Independent Author.
There's an excerpt below and you can read the entire thing here.
"In as far as I’m qualified to offer any advice, I’d tell any indie authors to try and not second-guess themselves. I know it’s hard but always try to own up to what you’re doing 100%. Don’t look back. Be very aware of what you’re looking to achieve. If you like writing as a hobby, that’s fantastic, you can have a lot of fun and it’s really one of the cheapest hobbies you can have (I should know, I’m a hobby photographer and it’s expensive as hell). But if you want to make it a career you have to treat it that way. You have to treat it like work, not like a hobby.
Also, try to compartmentalize your brain. Keep the part of your mind that handles the marketing aspect away from the creative part. Write without thinking about selling. Then sell without thinking of writing. Trust me on that one!"
I suggest you follow the blog for some great and useful information on indie publishing.
Until next time,
