Having a few technical problems with my website so today's blog post appears on Goodreads. It's about that surprisingly contentious issue between writers, Plotting v Pantsing. Influenced by some of the discussions here in the Writers' Cafe? I couldn't possibly comment.  ::)

Wrote a post titled "Pros and cons of traditional book distributors," and what my publishing company did when it came to evaluating distributors.

Quote
Its important to note that distributors dont represent everybody. They choose which producers they want to include in their catalogs, and take a cut from any sales that occur. They also demand exclusivity if you sign a deal with a distributor, thats the only outlet for your product in a particular geographic area. Obviously, if you have a distributor, you can get onto shelves in retail outlets, which increases your chance for retail sales. If you dont have traditional distribution, youre probably out of luck, unless you can work out a deal on your own with a shop or chain of stores.

I posted Making Strides in 2018...

Quote
In my last blog post I talked about a renewed sense of determination to get things back on track after a very destructive year. So far, 2018 is off to a great start and things are looking up, although I certainly can't take anything for granted. It's early still, but if I can get things to continue snowballing in a good way instead of a bad way, this year should be a stark contrast to the last one! I've already released one new work (The Vengeance of Mirickar) and I have more on the way....

I'm sorry you had such a tough year, Stu.  I can't imagine going through the things you went through.  I'm glad you seem to have found some stability recently, and I hope you can continue to improve your life throughout 2018.

In the meantime, it's nice to see you posting here again.  :)

I posted to my editing blog, talking about how Chicago and AP both now agree on internet terminology:

AP and CMOS agree on something? Time to stock the bunker. The end times are coming.  :P

Only just started my blog last night, still setting it up :)

Not sure what I'll post on it once I've added my books.

As the release date of my newest novel approaches, I'm running a series of excerpts and giveaways.  This two-week giveaway is a stained glass window cling of Robert the Bruce, bought in Scotland. http://bluebellstrilogy.blogspot.com/2018/02/random-excerpt-battle-is-oer.html
