That looks harsh! Especially kamikaze mode. It starts to "unwrite" your words!!!

Very interesting, Kenny. I just downloaded the iPad version. Hopefully, by this time next week I'll be a published author.

Now if only I can find the time.

Just choose Kamikazi mode and go. You'll be published in no time.

Finished the first draft of my new book, it's ended up being a sort of cross between a skinhead Mills and Boon and a 1970s hells angel book so it'll probably take a while to turn it into something readable.

I just finished the first draft of the second book in my contemporary fantasy series - 171000 words. The first book was 163000, I told you I was verbose! No one else has seen anything of the second book yet, and I'm now about to hand it over to my first reader ... and I'm feeling very nervous.

I still haven't decided how to publish these books yet. The first one has two traditional publisher rejections already, and in Australia there are not very many such options for fantasy from unknown authors. I will probably make at least one more try down that route - via an agent this time. If that doesn't work I'll probably finish the series and then try self-publishing. I must say that reading the experiences of others here gives me more confidence about self-publishing. (The desire for traditional publishing is probably partly vanity, but also acknowledges my total lack of marketing expertise.)

Good luck with that as well. The other piece you should consider is what kind of control/autonomy do you want and how much of that do you want to take on or pay to have done for you. Also see this thread: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=178831

I'm currently working on my next Dave Riggler short story collectin, Long-Distance Dedications. I've got 3 stories already written for it, another 3 I'm working on, and probably 3 more to go. I'm also working on getting individual ones published as I go along. So far, "And Ye Shall Be Healed" has been published in Red Fez, and I'm working on getting "Leaving the Union" published.

Several things in the works, edited an essay late yesterday-I think it's complete and have a list of markets and will send it off when on 6/1 when the first market opens their reading window, another essay to edit/complete today and tons of ideas, but am not happy with my results at this point for having headed down this full-time writing path for not quite 3 months now. I'm going to spend the next couple of days continuing to work as above but also on re-evaluating my progress, direction and methods.

It's been over a year. I'm getting the urge to just toss all this social media marketing malarky out the window... and just write, and see what happens.

That's certainly more where my head is as you know from my posts in the "indie writer success" thread.

I think the marketing is important, but the most important thing is to writer great stuff!
