(Damn right, we got used to utter awesomeness) Yes, it was impossibly cool because now all the characters/actors feel like home. Yes, it was disgusting and scary and creepy (that home-made porn movie,… Continue reading American Horror Story ‘Freakshow’ Premiere

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.

It's a wonderful feeling when someone you really don't know likes your book.

Publishing on Amazon KDP and Createspace, or how to not sleep properly for a few days

If you're a self-published writer, then you know what I mean. 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
