10 Things I Learned as an Indie Author.

With Apologies to Buzzfeed:

1) Being listed on Amazon isn’t as glamorous as it looks.

Yes, there I am in the same category as Stephen King. How many have I sold? Well… *mumble mumble*

2) Reviews are like gold dust.

BugsBunny Dog

Opinions. Must. Have. Opinions.

3) Everything I have ever written is too short.

That'sAllFolks

Make my short story longer, you say?

4) Writing Erotica gets more and more tempting every year.

Bow-chicka-wow-wow = Ka-Ching!

5) No amount of sales is too small for a party.

Cash in the royalty cheques, we’re going Super-Size at McDonalds!

6) Nobody you know reads…

“Why don’t you get it made into a film?”

7) …Well, not what you’re writing anyway.

Wil E Coyote Psychology Book

“Is it like the DaVinci Code?”

8) Writing a blurb is one of mankind’s greatest challenges.

BUY MY BOOK BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW. THERE IS A GHOST IN IT.

9) It’s hard to explain what you do without giving people the wrong idea.

Boring Mechanism

No, I am not rich. No, I am not unemployed. Getting closer though.

10) It is the greatest feeling in the world.

Pepe Le Pew SPinning

“And more, much more than this, I did it my waaaaaaay.”

  • You forgot the part about having to choose which two categories your book is listed under is like Sophie’s Choice.

  • Oh man, that for me is the most time consuming part. I could have used the Sylvester smoking gif for that one too, but it’s too nightmareish to dredge up.

  • Hahahhaha. Great!

  • Thanks. 🙂
