Writing… new stuff. Getting rid of B.G. Hope after all. So I’m unpublishing her titles, and will republish them soon with new covers (the ones that aren’t selling) or simply the main pen name (for the body switches – the only sellers). I took down her web page, by the end of the month I hope to have the publisher’s page ready with everything.
Writerly links! Staying sane in a crazy (self-publishing) world, guest post on David Gaughran’s blog. At the right time when I’m getting rid of a pen name for discoverability reasons… I’m in my fifth year of publishing, it’s time to reassess and replan for the future. If only it stopped shifting. It’s not about selling books anymore, in case you missed Joe Konrath’s post. That’s 2014. Sigh.
But then there’s Hugh Howey suggesting a Bookbub for indies. Readers as gatekeepers. Why not. I’m trying to be more of a reader this year, and trying to read more traditionally published books. I’ll let you know how many I did not finish (not which ones, only how many)! 🙂
And finally – what’s an independent author? I don’t think you’ll see me to many more public events – I hate them too much – but if you enjoy one of my books, please spread the word, thank you! 🙂 Have a great week!
