Busy weekend and Monday afternoon with all the Six Sentence Sunday snippets to read and those pro-blogs to check. Here’s the list of posts worth checking!
Books&Such agents give advice on self-publishing – and it’s not that bad! ;-)
Dean Wesley Smith is starting a new series to teach us indie writers too think like a publisher. I will follow it eagerly (even if some things won’t apply to me as I’m not American, meh! :-()! :-D
Finally Self-Published Author’s Lounge on writers personalities. I didn’t watch the videos, but I know I’m Miss Melancholy (I even wrote a story with that title… I even had a young friend doing the shojo manga version more than ten years ago…).
Last suggestion came from David Farland – he mentioned Dramatica. So for all you Plotters out there, check this Writer’s Companion (the link goes to where you can download the comic book of how it works). If you’re a Pantser like me, you won’t need it! ;-)
Now let me announce the new upload on Smashwords, a short story that is a prequel to the upcoming Books of the Immortals – AIR (which I just got back from my editor, hopefully I will be able to put it out there at the beginning of April – next week I’m meeting with the artist for the cover). BUT it’s also my attempt at erotica, so don’t read if it offends it! ;-) In this story sex is only for lust, and love has nothing to do with it… and it’s a sad story… Maybe I’ll put six sentences up sometime. It’s a short story, so it’s free. Download your copy of Tarun, if you don’t mind the sex.
p.s. This post was written yesterday afternoon. Two hours before going live, I checked my Smashwords – Tarun is the most downloaded of my short stories! Over 100 download in less than 24 hours! It took a week for Starblazer to reach that number (and Jessamine is barely halfway there)! I guess erotica has a lot of followers after all… but I’m afraid it’s NOT my main genre! :-(
