Translating Your Work

One way to potentially expand your audience is to offer your work in more than one language. This is especially true if you have extensive distribution networks in countries and regions where a given foreign language predominates. I made a post on translating some time ago, but the emphasis of this post is how toContinue reading “Translating Your Work”

Plans for February

January was a pretty good month. Though not every goal was met, progress was nevertheless made across all fronts. For February, things should continue apace. I would like to continue my translation work, make some much-needed additions and corrections to this year’s Knights of Aralia books, and resume work on my long overdue rough draftContinue reading “Plans for February”

How to Look Professional as a Self-Published Author

Self-publishing still has quite a stigma attached to it, and not without reason. After all, it can be done by anyone who has the means and the time to put his or her work out there with a relative minimum of technical skill required. Hence, self-published books can and often do still turn out lookingContinue reading “How to Look Professional as a Self-Published Author”

Five Ways to Turn Love of Reading into a Career

It’s been a while since I’ve done a list post, so for my final substantial post of the year, I figured it might be fun to list a few ways you can turn your passion for reading into a profession.

How to Handle Rejection

Writers are no strangers to rejection. Barring incredible luck or lots of connections, even the most famous of published authors were often turned down many times before their work was accepted.

Writing About Touchy Subjects: Politics

In the last couple posts, I briefly talked about how to write about nudity and religion. In this final post in the trilogy, I shall talk about what is perhaps the most explosive topic of all in this day and age: politics. Now, I’ve covered a lot of this same ground in the last twoContinue reading “Writing About Touchy Subjects: Politics”

Writing About Touchy Subjects: Nudity

Sometimes writers encounter topics that can be tricky or even embarrassing to deal with. Subjects that I was always taught growing up did not belong in polite conversation. Yet, for the sake of the narrative we are putting forth, it is often necessary to push through somehow, lest we lose something in our attempts toContinue reading “Writing About Touchy Subjects: Nudity”

Plans for September

August was evidently a busy month, though with what, I’m not sure. I reckon I made progress on a few things, including a final review of the first book in my series to be released this fall. September will be a month of serious catch-up. However, it has historically been a very good month forContinue reading “Plans for September”

Sourcing & Bibliographies

Hello all! Sorry it’s been a while, but August has sort of whizzed by me somehow. At any rate, today I’ll be going over how to cite your sources in nonfiction works, as well as how to organize a proper bibliography. It may seem like a daunting task at first, but it’s really not thatContinue reading “Sourcing & Bibliographies”
