Why am I interested in this? Two reasons – 1. I like to keep an eye on what is going on in the Indie world, in case I ever decide to go down that route. 2. there are always some interesting points made that can equally be applied to mainstream published books.
For me in this one it is WRITE MORE. I can’t expect to develop a following if I don’t work hard at the writing. And yes I’m not going to push books out at a great rate of knots because I want to make sure they are as good as I can make them and if that means slower progress so be it, BUT it is a reminder that I need to spend more time writing and less wasting time – turn off the internet when I’m writing for example.
But it also raises a question – my publisher has an option of my sequel to Turn of the Tide – I’m happy with that. However I have a body of short stories that perhaps I could / should? put out myself on Kindle.
Any thoughts on that would be welcome.
