The Ugly, the Bad, and the Good: Why I decided to self publish my debut work THE PRINCE OF GRAVES

I posted this article on my author blog today. There’s a lot out there about traditional vs. self publishing. This gives my reasoning for self publishing one work while trying to traditionally publish another.


There’s not a lot that can pass for #Fantasy, #scifi, and #horror #writing inspiration, but this one can: alien moon. I like this one in particular because the cover of my soon-to-be released novella has a moon on it.  Yes, I will be sharing that soon.

#Writing and #Publishing…that’s a lot!

I want to apologize for how quiet this blog has been over the past few weeks. In a nutshell, I’ve been finishing my latest work, a fantasy novella of about 28,000 words, and preparing it for self publication. The link below is to a quick update I posted on my author blog, The Weathered Journal.

I’m excited about this, but it also begs for an article on WHY I’m going the self publishing route for this piece while I’m working the traditional route for my first novel. There is still a lot of skepticism (to put it mildly) from a lot of writers about self publishing, and I feel compelled to tell why I’m going this way. I hope to get that article out here shortly (as in, the next day or two). Until then, please check out my update on THE PRINCE OF GRAVES.
