Book Piracy – Ethics and Opinions
Book piracy is a long standing issue ever since the first download sharing site was born. It’s a controversial topic that has many people in an uproar to defend it or fight it. To talk about any topic I must first define what piracy means to me. Piracy is the means of using, reading, partaking in any product that is not regularly available for free.
PNWA Conference-Pitch Perfect
July Isn’t that Far Away
Preparing for my first writer’s conference, pitch perfect
I must admit, I’ve been writing for years and never went to a writer’s conference before. So this coming July I will be popping my author conference cherry with the PNWA Conference. It was always so expensive to go to one, which deterred me for many years, it isn’t any less expensive now, but building my network, getting the experience, and meeting some agents is an investment that I… (more…)
Are You An Author?
At what point do you start a blog? Now.
At what point are you an author? Now… we’re getting complicated.
Well, by definition an author is a writer of a book, article, report, or piece of writing.
Have you written something? If you can say yes to this, then you are an author. And by default that also makes you a writer. TA-DA! Do you feel like you’ve just leveled up? I sure do, because despite the definition, as black and white as it can get, sometimes I don’t feel like an author or a writer due to peer pressure.
What I “FEEL” like an author is, is a person that generates a book, and that book is for sale, available for reading, as proof of having written. That is a very tough definition, because by nature a book is a very long lengthy process, that becomes more difficult to complete because you’re so wrapped up in the image of if you are or are not an author. All that time you’re spending writing can be looked upon as frivolous. So during that whole time of writing, a blog, an article, a short story, a flash fiction, a serial novel, a letter, etc. Are you not a writer then? Are you not producing written content then? Are you not considered to be the infamous AUTHOR?
I’ve come to tell you in my first blog post of my spankin’ new website to brighten your weary writer’s soul to say, “YES, WE ARE!”
And the time is now, to start that author website, to write that blog, to finally call yourself an author. Because all this prep work on the web, it isn’t something you should be doing after (Insert random event/procrastination attempt here.) It’s something you should be doing right now, build your readership, build your network of writerly friends that will help support you during the tough times. Because there will be tough times.
I’m here to share my author journey with you, and I hope you’ll share your own experience with me as well. Tell me when you first decided to start writing, tell me when you first decided to start your website, tell me when you first decided to start your blog and what was your first post? Feel free to tag your website/post in the comments.
