Writing Business Writing Life

D2C and Reader Relationship

When I’m not posting my rantings here at the website, I’m reading a lot. Not just fiction but a plethora of non-fiction. It’s imperative for me as I’m not signed with any big publisher and I plan on keeping it that way as long as I can. In order to do that, I need to keep my three fans in the loop because there are a couple things an independent publishing writer needs to do and that is connect with his or her audience.

Fiction Novels Superheroes

In the Oven: Fantastic Four – War Zone

It probably doesn’t come as a big shock to those who know me that I collect comics (well…used to. Comics are too expensive. Even the digital versions. But I do know how to find gems but that’s for another post possibly). I have rows of them in boxes in my basement right behind me. I was collecting Avengers when most people were giving them a thumbs down.

I also collect superhero novels. They were hard to find until recently, like about a week five days ago. Now, I’m like a kid in a candy store. So much so I’ve decided to add yet another series to my website.

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies and Writing

I’m a fan of fantasy because there is a whole lot of truth in some of it. That being said, I went to see the latest offering of The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies. Though I normally like to relate movies closer to the superhero genre, this had elements in it that qualified it as being included. So consider this more of a special inclusion rather than a normal thing.
