Thanks for stopping by!

The Strange Writer is a blog for those who are taking the indie route in publishing, and doing the work themselves. Consider me a case study.


I’ve chronicled the journey of working on and then releasing my science fantasy romance novel, Femme.

I created the cover for Femme at the cost of $7.75 and a week’s worth of time. I found the same five truths about indie publishing repeated by everyone in the industry. I went through a hair-pulling editing stage and stumbled on the psychology of editing. I lined up my promotional have-to’s and need-to’s, and learned things about front matter and how to submit to bookshops and distributors like Amazon and Smashwords.

And I’m still learning and fumbling and getting a handle on the process.

I hope my blog can be a way for us to take the journey together. I’ll do my best not to skip the really important bits.

  1. Reading Femme; back at you in about a week or so, Delia. It’s not that I’m a slow reader, it’s just that the menial and mundane, such as working and sleeping, get in the way of the important things in life. lol Till then…



    • Take your time :) Myself, I’m a slower reader than most (and it takes me a while to get around to a book depending on what I’ve got on the boil, too). I’m interested in what you’ll make of ‘Femme’ and really hope you enjoy it.
