...or maybe I have too much Rain Man playing in my head. (Three of my classes watched the first half today...a little comparison/contrast thing I do with Of Mice and Men).
Today at JA Konrath's blog, A Newbie's Guide to Publishing, he interviews Karen McQuestion, a self-pubbed Kindle author with some serious sales numbers. Go ahead. Read the article. Be wowed.
I am. I tossed up The Bottom Feeders and Other Stories a few weeks ago, knowing short story collections are a hard sell in the real world, let alone via ebook. Thanks to you lovely blog-reader people, I've sold a few copies. Nothing to write home about.
It was an experiment. Still is.
And now I'm prepping another one. There are so many ways to fail as a writer, I might as well try them all, eh? With The House Eaters forthcoming from Virtual Tales and Loathsome, Dark, and Deep on sub with a publisher with whom I'd really like to work, I still have one decent novel floating around in a drawer. One I haven't really worked to hard too sell. (we won't mention the unmentionable books hiding in the darkest reaches of a hard drive)
Stay tuned...or not.
