    Self Publishing: Interested?

    Hey everyone, I'm currently knee-deep in the second draft of my first book and I'm already thinking ahead to publishing. After doing some research, I'm starting to lean towards self-publishing rather than approaching a traditional publisher. Why settle for a small piece of the profits that I...

    Starting a Company

    Question for those who are having success. Have you done, or given thought to, making your own publishing company, or creating yourself as an LLC, or Sole Proprietor. If so, why? and what did you learn or would recommend? One area where I see there might be a reason is working with Ingram...

    Traditional Publishing vs Indy, or Self Publishing

    So, seems the trend in many of our publishing threads as skewed towards self publishing. I am wondering if anyone is looking towards traditional publishing anymore? or has it all gone Indy. Do you feel that the path towards traditional is too much of a hurdle, and do you think you lose...

    The Sage's Lot - Prologue Pt2

    Xylin’s escape thereafter involved no more bloodshed, shifting to his insubstantial form to become almost invisible in the shadows and once again pass through those iron-barred gates like tobacco smoke escaping a gap-toothed smile. Now though, some tolls of the bell later, Xylin didn’t find...
