“””2. ENJOY YOURSELF
There are vast, the-end-of-Raisers-of-the-Lost-Ark warehouses crammed with books that will never see the light of day. Despite whatever honors you’ve achieved or whatever others may think of your talents, your novel might end up being one of those books.

As you all know, there are SO many writers here on WordPress. Some have publishing deals, others have sellf-published, and yet more don’t know the first thing about grammar. The quality of the writer is impossible for you to know because no, writing a blog post is not and never will be the same as writing a new chapter in a story or any type of fiction at all.

To which they reply, “That makes no sense. And we’re not supermodels, we’re figments of your imagination.”
“Touché,” I hypothetically reply…
Anyway, here’s my interview with Awesome Indie PT Hylton, author of “Regulation 19“.
JLM — Cormac McCarthy once said fiction that doesn’t deal with issues of life and death isn’t literature. How do you feel about that? And do you have any guiding philosophical beliefs about writing?

Goodreads – with its 18 million rabid readers – is one of the most powerful places for an author to be discovered.
Goodreads is where folks converge to discuss novels, offer recommendations, write reviews, and keep compilations of the books they’ve read and want to read. Etailers like Kobo and Google feed Goodreads reviews directly into their websites.
Even if you’re not a member, your books are still listed and attracting reviews. Take advantage of the opportunity to control your own profile and book data and provide information that’ll bring the reader directly to you.
