I wanted to keep this post simple and simply wish all a very Merry Christmas with a little extra.
When I make decisions, I want to make decisions that will ultimately be good for my business and be a win-win for everybody involved. That means my fans, my publishing team, and myself.
Just recently, within the last month, I’ve made the decision that I was no longer going to be giving away free books… sort of. I explain what I mean in this post.
I’ve mentioned before that I happen to be a superhero prose novel aficionado. At the moment, I’m reading a Daredevil novel called The Cutting Edge by Madeline E. Robins and I’m enjoying it right from the get. I’m only 24 pages in but I have a feeling about this one.
This is not the same feeling I got when I started Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Empyre. I should have taken that as a sign.
I looked at the text. I haven’t posted anything since April. You’re probably saying, “What’s wrong with you Easton? Are you lollygagging over there?” C’mon, son (those who are fans of Psych will know that reference). You should know better than that. Let me give you the 411 on why it’s been such a long pause in between posts.
Every day here at RIU HQ, I’m looking for something to streamline and also enhance the experience of my fans and/or potential fans. This past week, I found something that I’m excited about. I’ve known about it for a little while but I’ve just officially added it to my personal tools in my independent-publishing endeavor. I now have a page at Patreon. Why did I do this and what is Patreon? Come on in and I’ll tell you.
