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.
Christian fiction. Christian fantasy. Christian sci-fi. Christian writing. Christian writer. All of these things are part of the sub-genres that now litter the publishing landscape. There are pros and cons to having that moniker. I’ve had discussions with others about this very thing and I felt that it was a good time to write an in-depth post on my view on this since I fall into this category. In it, I’ll explain why I am not a Christian writer and how that doesn’t change my ability to market to Christians.
It’s summertime. One of my favorite things to do during the summer is to sit in my backyard, stretch out my legs and prop them up on one of my patio chairs, adjust the umbrella for the right amount of shade, and begin to read a good story. I’m going to be doing a lot of that this summer and I want you to join me so I have a couple of different places where you can go and download some stories absolutely free. But you better get in on this now because it’s going to be running out soon.
It finally has arrived. After some months and some clandestine work behind the scenes, the RIU Storefront is open for business. And there’s a little something extra that’s included so read this post if you want in.
