Book Writing is Simple

Book writing is simple. Writing books for me is easy. Everything and everyone is inspiring. I really feel like I could come up with a story plot about almost any topic thrown at me. My process is planning then writing. It can take about 7 days to plan the story and then within the next week I can be finished writing a 300 page novel. It’s really easy for me to do and when I explain this to other people they are in awe. They say I wish I could do that and I really want to write a book, but…   I want to figure out what the ‘but’ is and how I can help people write their books.

So, if you have a problem or something that you always get stuck on tell me. I’m willing to respond to any questions you’ve got.

Self Publishing Is Traditional

I’m a self publisher. 20 years old and I’m working on publishing my tenth book.

People argue that self publishing is bad and self publishing doesn’t have the quality that traditional publishers do, but I argue that self publishing is the most traditional way of publishing. Before there were publishing houses writers sat and hand wrote their short stories to share with people and before that people would pay to hear a story told of distant places. People were creating all by themselves. They were finding ways to get their work out and be paid for it.

Many people don’t realize that so many of the famous stories we love and look back to were self published first. Whether their stories were first denied by publishers or they self published first, they were self published. I can’t stand people who say all self published books are horrible because it’s very likely that a book you love was once self published.

It is traditional to share talents. It is traditional to put your foot out about something you’re passionate about. It is traditional to try to make money doing what you love to do. It is also traditional to take chances. Self publishers put themselves out there and work very hard to promote writings that they believe in. I say taking chances and that makes me laugh because it seems like I’m asking you to read a huge self published novel with a cover that has words misspelled.  No, that is not what I’m asking. I’m only asking that you don’t throw all self publishing authors in the same bin.

As for self publishing authors, I’m sticking up for us, but you better write the best gosh darn novel! (LOL.) Don’t put out crap. Edit and re-edit. Ask a friend, family member or me to read through what you write. You know what your novel is supposed to say, but someone else reading it only reads what it does say. For self publishing authors giving free ebooks is the best way to gain readers and test your foot in the publishing waters.

Self publishing is traditional. Putting your self and your work out there is traditional. It’s ordinary to share your work, but you hope that people find your work more extraordinary than anyone else in your field. So, good luck.

Now Playing: Gold Kush

Wow, I haven’t done a now playing blog in a while, so I’ve got a short one for you. If you’ve been keeping up with me, you know that I’ve been working on my ebook, Grime Diary: The American Interpretation. The ebook is free and is already out now, but I won’t be promoting it on my website and twitter until tomorrow. I really hope that you show your support and download a free copy of Grime Diary: The American Interpretation.

The reason I bring up my new ebook is because Grime is from the UK, so I’ve had my toes in their musical waters. Lately, I’ve been exposed to so many talented artist over there. I had been tweeting a lot about their music and I started following this girl, Gold Kush (@Gold_Kush). You know on twitter people claim to be all kinds of things. I have people harass me over book publishing until they finally realize that I’m a publish author and not a fake. So, Gold Kush’s twitter said she was an MC. I never doubted it, but I never checked her youtube page. I had forgotten I followed her until I saw a video today on my timeline of hers.

You can’t lie and say the flow isn’t good. She’s really reppin’ and I love it. Basically, I want everyone to keep this girl on your radar. Follow her and check out her youtube channel. She’s got even more bangers on her youtube channel.

 

Stay Classy.

Grime Diary: The American Interpretation out soon!
