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”

Editors and Beta Readers

We all know how helpful it can be to get someone else’s opinion on our work. Sometimes our own inner eye simply isn’t enough to catch all the problems with a manuscript, be they with the story, the grammar, or something else entirely. Hence, a good editor or beta reader can be worth his weightContinue reading “Editors and Beta Readers”

Plans for January

December was a fairly decent month, despite being gone a week for Christmas (which was not entirely unproductive either). I made great progress on a novella rough draft, a little on a translation, and drafted no less than four new articles in just two weeks! More could have been done, but alas, there simply wasn’tContinue reading “Plans for January”

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. And in some cases, even once published, their work was rejected by the readers of their own day. Now, everybody has his or herContinue reading “How to Handle Rejection”

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”

Plans for August

Well, July was one busy month, culminating in one of the busiest, most exciting experiences of my whole career as an author or a furry at Free Fur All 2022. I could spend an entire post reviewing this (and probably will), but suffice it to say, it was excellent. I don’t know exactly what IContinue reading “Plans for August”

Plans for July

June was a very busy month, and very productive as well. While not all goals were met, nevertheless, things picked up from previous months. I oversaw the re-launch of my old titles under my new publisher, completed a novella revamp many months overdue, and completed a review of my main series, which I hope toContinue reading “Plans for July”
