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.
