Self-Publishing – Hyping up your novel can be tough. Here’s some ideas.

Image by chenspec from Pixabay It's no secret that self-publishing is a rough time, marketing included. With my series, it took me a long while to grasp matters, and I still am learning quite a bit. I'll share my experiences on here, and perhaps it will help you. My series hasn't taken off quite yet,…

The Problem with “Virgins” & “Purity” in myth/stories

Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay I present to you, upon entering this article, the bleached version of a pigeon. Or, as some know them, doves. Not the soap company, not the chocolate company, but the bird that supposedly represents 'purity', which is, plainly put, a ridiculous notion. This article will ruffle some feathers for…

Fun For Active Readers – Notes & Highlights can be seen on Goodreads

Now, I'm a very active reader, and I write extremely detailed reviews. To the point where I still consider becoming a book blogger, because it would make sense. As you can see from my blog here, though, I like talking about a variety of things and hate restrictions. Anyway, to support other self-published authors, I…

A Deep Dive into Anxiety – My Experience

Project Juggling & Anxiety – My experience

Lately, I've been experiencing so much project overload, but I also do not want to stop my current pace. Whether it's at work, which takes up a lot of my mental energy, or when I get off work (from one job to another, rather), I've jam packed myself. When it comes to having ADHD, it…

So Much Juggling: A Creative’s Thought Piece

Lately, I've been taking up many projects such as various things to do with writing (my own editing work & a commission), narration (which eventually I'll take commissions for, once I get better), and skit work/informative videography pieces. My goals are to finish the commission relatively soon (I have a lot done on it!) and…

Denial of Publishing Contracts: My Experience

A lot of people have been curious about specifics of my experience ever since I posted this thread on twitter. In it, I warned people about having an expert look over any publishing contract before signing anything. I'll start from the beginning of my experience, and tell the entire story. A few weeks ago, my…
