When I was first shown the joys of writing, blogs didn’t exist. The concept of self-publishing was a pipe dream only accessible to the very wealthy or connected. The concept of being a struggling author who manages to get his work out to the public outside of the normal mechanism of publisher and agent was romantic, yes, but mostly a dream.
Now, it’s a different world.
I’m J. B. Garner, James to my friends, and finally am, well, living the ‘dream’ of being a self-published author. Unfortunately, there aren’t exactly manuals to this. Okay, I lie, there are. In fact there are some rather nice ones. Many of the ideas they put forth I followed to the letter. Others, well …
That is why it has been weeks since I published before I actually have a real honest-to-God blog. Previously, I had kept my musings to my deviantArt page (http://megatarget.deviantart.com/ in case you care) but I have since been properly shown the wisdom of sharing previews, musings, and general day-to-day me to the broader world.
Expect to see sneak peaks of writing from my ongoing series (The Push Chronicles and Three Seconds to Legend), events I attend (this will happen!), and anything else associated with my authorial life.
