When it comes to choosing a literary genre or sub-genre for a book, it can get a bit confusing. Today, with there being so many genres and sub-genres, It can be enough to drive you bonkers. If you are brave enough to venture into the RIU, I thought it may be beneficial to lay out the details of exactly what you can expect.
Well, there’s good news and there’s bad news. The good news is that a new book from The Dark Corner has been released. The bad news is that it is no longer exclusive to RIU Citizens. But never fear because something has appeared on the horizon that we are exploring and will soon make available to RIU Citizens. Read the post to find out more.
Wow. Time really does fly.
It’s been two weeks since my last post. Doesn’t mean I wanted to neglect you guys. I have been busy. This post pretty much proves that as today is the day for the re-release of the second book in The Dark Corner series, The Forest. In this post, I give you a glimpse on what’s been going on behind the scenes at RIU central and what you can expect to see in the coming months. So come on in.
I was sitting around thinking and it occurred to me that some people may be a little bit confused on what it is exactly that I write. Readers are a finicky sort and they like things in neat aisles normally so they can identify exactly what it is that they want to be immersed in as far as whatever they want to read. That’s understandable because you want to make sure that whatever you’re reading is something that you going to enjoy in your chosen genre of interest.
I talk a lot about superheroes butI haven’t actually put out anything close to being superheroic. As a matter fact, I’ve put something out that is classified in a totally different genre. Now, why am I doing that? Am I trying to confuse you guys and just send mixed signals? God forbid. There’s actually a method to my madness and today I thought it might be high time I explain it.
The goal to be more productive is something that most people in business desire—or what most people that do what they love to do desire. It’s even more so for writers I think because our profession is only taken seriously when we’ve actually finished something. There is already the stigma that what were doing is not really work (which I can vehemently disagree with in one whole post alone). Add to that the fact that we are arduously committing effort and time to something where the reward is on the far back end if the reward ever comes at all. That reward is not really getting paid though that can be a part of it. No, the reward is actually finishing whatever it is that we’ve written and getting the thing published. The only way that that is going to happen is if you are cranking out the requisite amount of words to get to the end. That is why it’s so important to set goals in terms of word count. That is why mine has just increased.
