I Watched ‘Love Is Strange’.

Oh, this was a sad movie. No, I'm not spoiling anything, my overall impression has nothing to do with an ending, or a specific event in the script, I just had to say, it's sad. There's an air of melancholy that I didn't expect (which is totally my fault since I only finished re-watching Third… Continue reading I Watched ‘Love Is Strange’.

Things that suck in the Writing Community, or Why we are all dicks with self-promotion.

Okay, after a short while in the writing community, I am really grateful about how much I learned. I learned about myself, my writing habits, my writing mood and what interests me. I learned not to accept every possible manuscript exchange for an honest review. I learned new fancy writing words.

I LOVE both KDP and CS, but being new in all of this and battling spawns of Satan such as 'enter tax information even though you're not a US citizen', or 'Dear Amazon, why isn't my cover visible yet' left me looking like this… Continue reading Publishing on Amazon KDP and Createspace, or how to not sleep properly for a few days
