Inktober delayed

So between layout for this and general feeling blah… Guess what I did not get done. Will be up again around three. In the am. So I already wrote the poem. Just got to put it on a graphic and draw the art.

Professional vs hobby

I have been working on going through my poetry volumes (also did Serena’s novella and her novel). I have been updating covers, double checking layout, spelling and grammar. Now, I published all of them… So I should have been doing very little… And for the newer ones… I have been doing less. I was an indie publisher from the get go… But I really had no clue what I was doing. I designed my covers but I didn’t have access to the tools that I have now. I have learned. I have grown.

The first image is the first cover, the second is the newest. Just because I was not knowledgeable doesn’t mean that I approached publishing as a hobby. Hobbyist, in my opinion are the ones who don’t actually put in any effort to improve how they do things.

I have two more volumes of poetry…Music for the soul and soul’s door. I think that I am finally happy with how they look. I think that I will put off the cleanup/ refresh of my kids books until December as November is shaping up to be very busy.

What is the difference between pro and hobbyist to you?

Looking at my links

Trying to get my books all out on draft2digital. I have all of them on Amazon for both ebook(mobi) or paperback. I am trying to get the layout right for d2d and do some updates on covers and the like. I do all of the covers for me and for Serena. I am working with a couple of other authors, so I may be doing some for them as well.

This is what’s out for all editions.
Will post for each as i finish them. All Books will have three links. Amazon with two links and then one for everywhere else.

Timing and verse

So I have been very sick or this post would have been made last week. I have finished writing the poetry for Temporal Verse. I am working on layout and will be posting links soon.

I am going to be doing the inktober challenge… And I will post the pictures of it daily. However, I will likely not be posting long descriptions with. As that would make it harder for me. Inktober, for the uninformed, is a daily drawing challenge. I will not promise that mine will be the best art out there, as the challenge draws some amazeballs artists. I am going to try to post here and twitter and instagram.

Then I plan on doing the pad challenge in November, and Serena is doing Nanowrimo. So I will try to post some of the results, poetry and teasers for her. I am not going to promise that because I may not have any extra time.

I have started branching into other places to sell my books. Draft2digital offers me options for many venues. I will be next week doing a post up with the links that I have already, and I will attempt to update it monthly.

There have been discussions on doing an audiobook version of Rust, Gore, and the Junkyard Zombie as a anniversary release. If we do it, then it will be May.

I have a couple of poems from the new volume to share, I will do it in a separate post. This is mostly just upcoming news. ☺

Also, I have been posting on Facebook a poll. The title for my next volume of poetry… I am leaving in fan hands. Cast your vote.
