Great article by Dean Wesley Smith on newer indie writers and their perspective on the business of writing…


I know that I did really well during the Kindle “Gold Rush” and I did not have the skill to back it up. My expectations got skewed and I got kinda down on things when sales dropped off. But I didn’t quit; instead I focused more than ever before on the writing and paying my dues. I’ve learned what works for me and, most importantly, I’ve learned how to have fun at it again.

Dean’s taught me a lot, even though he doesn’t know it. If you’re a writer and you’re not following this guy you’re missing out on some of the best advice in the business; no exaggeration.
