An Indie Blueprint

Postby ThomasKCarpenter » Tue May 07, 2013 9:46 am

I don't agree with every item in this list, but 90% are good advice. Of course, the basics are always: read more, write more, improve more; and that goes for indie or traditional or hybrid or whatever people are calling themselves these days.,150526.0.html

I violate a number of these, like picking a genre, mostly because I want to write what I'm passionate about at the moment rather than sticking with a genre that I'm only writing in because it keeps my fans better.

I also don't market and think for the most part, except for a few easy and non-time intensive methods, it's a waste of time, but I'm probably a minority on this one.

Thanks for shaing, Tom. Always good to hear solid advice from someone who is seeing real results. That guy's covers are boss, too.

I agree about picking a genre. It may be helpful for financial success, but financial success and satisfaction aren't always the same thing.
