10 Steps to Self-Publishing

Today I truly stopped giving a fuck about what every other writer on Earth is doing to make money from their self-published works. All that has ever bought me is anxiety and suffering because this industry is rough and I just don’t have the resources to compete.

So, friends, I am going to run my own race now. Wait, I am too lazy to run races. I am going to slowly march to the beat of my very own hand-crafted drum. The outside world no longer concerns me. I’m going to do things MY way.

Publishing Announcement!

On May 1st 2017 I will release not only The Fifth Warrior- Book One of the Disincarnates Series but Resfeber too.

In the past I had all the motivation in the world, but no discipline, no resources and no willpower. I was the sort of person who had a new, fantastic idea every second day. I would set up the blogs, pages, links and channels and then… I’d fail.

It is actually spectacular just how many times I failed, and yet never learned my lesson.

This time, however, at least one thing is different. I invested in my very own domain name. I paid for this blog. You can bet your souls I am dedicated to it!

So, it might not be very original, but I’ll kick this off by telling you about me.
