Does the World Really Need Another Writing Blog? You Bet!

Every writer has to have a writing blog. It’s in the So You Want To Be a Writer Handbook. So, being dutiful authors, the internet now teems with hundreds of thousands, probably even millions, of writing blogs, with everyone trying to come up with content that someone actually cares enough about to read.


Here’s why you’ll want to read this one. I’m going to tell you the whole nasty, uplifting, soul-searing, sublime truth about writing, publishing, and selling books. In other words, this blog will be a non-airbrushed reality series on the whole book business from a writer’s perspective. I’ll share what works and what doesn’t work freely and openly as I move through the whole author/publisher/marketer process. If I discover the silver bullet of marketing, I’ll put it out there for everyone to try, and if I bomb on an effort, I’ll tell you about that too.

I’m pretty sure the wasted efforts will outnumber the good ones, kind of like going out on a first date. It’s either a good story or a good date, and if you date a lot, you can count on being a darn good story teller. But, just like calling your best friend after another I-can’t-believe-he-did-that date, sharing the whole book business experience with pals entertains, educates, and helps us all hang onto our sanity about the whole process.

So, let’s do this together. I’m in. Are you?
