It's been a quiet week at our house. I was trying to think what to post about, and came up empty lol.
Editing those new short stories is going well. I've even found titles for most of them, which I was hoping for but hadn't expected because titles and back cover blurbs are the parts of writing I find the hardest. I like the stories I write. Making them sound interesting enough for other people to pick up and read, however, is really hard.
Awkward segue! ;)
As for being interesting enough for other people to read, it's Indie August! I encourage everyone who likes reading to go and check out Independent Authors - especially local ones to your area - to see all the books you might be missing out on by only reading what's popular enough to hit the front displays of big stores. And, because I love reading the online versions, I'm including Indie Comic Authors and Illustrators in my request that you check out Indie Creators. There are some great online comics (some with print books) and if you like graphic novels you will definitely find Comic Authors and Illustrators to love using a search of "online comics" plus your genre of choice (ie: Fantasy, Sci Fi, etc). As a bonus, once you start reading an online comic, the ads will often display other online comics and you can discover even more. It's a win-win.
Hope you have a great weekend!
Why are Authors crazy? I can't answer that, but I can provide bits of my own thoughts so that you can piece together why I may be.
