Draft Cover -- Woot!

Draft Cover — Woot!

Over the last year I’ve started teaching a workshop called “What kind of loser indie publishes, and how can I be one too?” To put it mildly, there’s been a clamoring for the information. And, despite several good books on this topic already available, that clamor includes requests for a book from me. Said book was already in the works, so, what the heck, here’s the unedited Chapter One of the book by the same name slated for August 2013 release. Following is its current Table of Contents.

Chapter One: You can make (no) money all by yourself.

My Personal Definition of a Loser:

  • Willing to work hard to make little or nothing.
  • Comfortable having people whisper “he couldn’t get a real book contract” behind his back.
  • Under the right circumstances, would run naked on a beach.

Seriously, y’all, any writers out there? If you’re a writer, chances are you’re not in the game expecting a Spindletop gusher payday. Sure, it would be nice, but we all know most writers — most traditionally published authors — are working stiffs like the rest of us. For every J.K. Rowling, there’s a legion of also-rans, slodging away at day jobs they might not even like. English teachers. Air conditioner installers. Attorneys by day, like me, and night-and-weekend artists, like most of you reading this book.

Yee-ha!

    Or insurance agents…….ewwwww….insurance…..of course, you love it when you need it, right? AND, everybody is going to buy it….how cool is that?

    Except all my writing is still in my head; I have to find a way to corral those stories and get started.

    My son is an attorney, a prosecutor. He’s keeping our streets safe and putting bad guys in jail.

    Boy, you can’t open your computer, read the news, or go out in public without being inundated with bad news. Seriously bad news. Hurricanes, mass murder, earthquakes. Personally, I find it all a little hard to process. The stress of taking on the entirety of the world’s bad news is more than we’re made to [... […]
