GoIndieNow

26 Nov

           It’s always time to Go Indie Now.

Joe Compton very kindly interviewed me a month ago. Joe runs/owns/publishes/creates/”does magic” over at the GoIndieNow website. His YouTube channel now has the “Time to GoIndieNow Episode 21” up for viewing. It is a wonderful video that features Independent Writers and artists.

Here is his blurb for the latest video:

“Welcome to “Time to GoIndieNow”. This is Episode 21 of the flagship show but the first with it’s brand new more “grown up” title. 21 is a number synomas with upping the stakes but also maturing into roles that don’t always allow your creative energy to be focused in one area. In some sense we are all part timers, while we may give everything to our art we do have a sense to live our lives and enjoy moments that aren’t always about art. That is an important distinction and a line we all must and need to draw.” Joe Compton, 2017.

If you check out the video description, you will find Joe links to all the indie artists’ media sites and provides all their contact details. How wonderful is that? The Indie community is such an amazing support group. Thanks, Joe.

If you are impressed with Joe then please reach out and tell him. You can find him here (see that? I’m copying Joe):

If you want to skip right to my interview then click here but the entire video is worth viewing. The video quality of my interview is my fault for using such a cheap-bum video camera thing-me-bob. Joe does a wonderful job hiding me, lol. I should invest in a new video camera…


In other news, I should hit 50K in NaNoWriMo today. Another shout out to the MLs for the Ottawa NaNoWriMo gang!

Quick Update

21 Jun

So I have stopped my review request campaign. Turns out that this is rather rude. It’s like telemarketing. Luckily, one of the first people I sent an email to is an author who has a rather acerbic wit. She led me to her website that deals with authors who would spam others. It had excellent advice and I am in the process of implementing the advice.

On a more positive note, I have now included a widget on my website. It’s on the right-hand side and it is a graphic from Pacemaker that shows how many words I have written in my novel Stoc. I need to write about 50,000 words to finish the novel. I finished Part One yesterday at around 48,000 words. That will bring the novel to around 100K words which is the right number of words for my novels, I think. 120K words is a little too much.

Anyway, now you can track my progress!

Ciao.

Canadian Military Family Magazine

20 Mar

I am pleased to report that the Canadian Military Family Magazine (cmfmag.ca) has done a piece on me under their Avid Reader section. It’s a lovely two paged glossy write up with a section on me and a section where I got to recommend novels that inspire me. I have no idea where you can get the magazine if you are interested – especially outside of Canada. I do know in Barrhaven you can pick it up at the Sobey’s Grocery Store for free by the door. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen the latest issue there yet.

Here’s a pic of the inside. Sure hope this is legal to post here!
