Rocking Self-Publishing Thursday…!

rockingToday’s Rocking Self-Publishing Podcast episode was an incredible experience.  Featuring hybrid author Rachael Herron, it starts off destroying any misconceptions you had about traditional publishing.  She got a big 6-figure deal in an auction, and had to split 45k over 3 years (after taxes and the agent’s cut). She’s now making good money self-publishing (2-3k a month, if memory serves me).

The most important part of the podcast happened about 1/2 through, when she got into dealing with motivation issues, writer’s block, super high productivity, good vs. bad writing (for drafts), and the writing/productivity class she gives.  Listeners will get a 1/2 price special deal for her class, which is about 40 bucks.

And then there’s the guest post from Monday — don’t forget about that (especially if you’re interested in better using Twitter):

Fogland Episode 3: House Call on Queasy Street

Ladies: if listening to Mark Capell’s sexy British accent doesn’t do it for you (it did for me), you can download the ebook for 99 cents on Amazon.

Fogland Episode #2 — The Harbinger of Gloom Street

Fogland is a fascinating literary project by Mark Capell, author of Cafe Insomniac.  Lindy Moone was the one who tipped me off about Mark’s book, last Fall, and today she has a Fogland story over on his site:

The Harbinger of Gloom Street

So what, exactly, is Fogland?  In Mark’s words:

FOGLAND is going to be a series of weekly podcasts. Each episode features a short story from a different writer.

But there’s a link.

Every story is set in the world of FOGLAND. This is a mythical town where, owing to its geographical location, fog descends on over two hundred days of the year.

Writers can either expand on characters and story lines in previous episodes of Fogland or create new ones in their stories. And it can be written in any style. The title must include a Fogland street name (which the writer devises).

When each episode has been written, I record it and distribute it on the weekly Fogland podcast.

At the end of the podcast, listeners are encouraged to explore other works by the featured author.

At the same time, the author can publish the text version of their story in online stores.

The author can charge for that book or go the perma-free route. It’s up to them. They can also embed the podcast on their own website and use it for promotion, or elsewhere.

Mark Capell is calling on all authors who are interested to write stories for upcoming Fogland episodes, and I must admit it has piqued my interest. Between writing a sequel to “Kick” and cage fighting for guns, gold and diamonds, I may not have time.

We’ll see 🙂

Self-Publishing Roundtable: Episode 34 (Nathan Lowell)

Before I knew what Indie Publishing was (not many years ago), I picked up some ebooks to read on my Kindle DX and found that many of the books weren’t very good 🙂  Then a friend of mine said, “You should pick up Quarter Share by Nathan Lowell.”  I’d never heard of Nathan Lowell, but I gave it a try — and loved his writing!  He writes in a conflict-free manner about a young man who signs aboard a spaceship for a “quarter-share” of a specific percentage of the profits.  The series is us watching him move up the ladder to half share, full share, double share and then Captain’s share.  If it were a game, it’d be called “Sim Space Merchant.”

Here’s the link to the creators of the video: http://selfpublishingroundtable.com/

Here’s a roundtable discussion from yesterday, which I found fascinating.  He talks about his writing experience and the method by which he developed his stories (podcasts, at first, then ebooks).
