Do you need money to hire Beta Readers? Copy Editors? Cover Artists?
What about a bit of pocket change to promote your book?
Well, most of us do. We indie authors are up against it. One lament I hear every single time I visit a forum or a Facebook group is: “I can’t afford _______.” Just fill in the blank. Some of us lie to ourselves because we don’t want to afford those services. And gosh, it sounds just fine to plead poverty. Gives the image of the struggling author living in a cold-water garret suffering for his craft. Some consider publishing a book an adventure. “Hey, if I make a little money on the side, great. If not, I’m in the groove. I’m a published author.” Chatting that up on a first date, or with the carpool mommies, or at cocktail parties has more cachet than saying, “I work at Walmart.”
Whatcha Havin’ for Supper?
Boo-ya! The sun is shining here in my corner of Texas. The weather is just right, no humidity, just cool enough to keep mosquitoes huggin’ the undersides of leaves and not makin’ pest of themselves. Tiny titmouse chicks hatched yesterday in the nest mama titmouse built atop the anchor bolt in the satellite dish. They’re not feathered up yet and their necks are wobbly. Neighbors on two sides of me have their outdoor grills fired up and the good cooking smells are wafting in the air. I can tell by the aroma of spices comin’ across my back yard that one is grilling fajitas, the other is barbecuing chicken.

Good evening readers and fans. I am so sorry I have been neglecting you. Indie authorship is a steep learning curve and I’m still finding my way. I do want to share some news. I have created my first boxed set with my three most popular novels to date. Erin Dameron-Hill designed a sensational cover. Monday, May 04, 2015 is the official launch of Setting Up House, priced at 99¢ through Mother’s Day, May 10.
