I still can’t believe it’s the start of ten years of self-publishing…
You can see my very first blog post about self-publishing here dated 3/4/2011 (click link)
I’m still on a bit of a weirded out high from that. Ten years is a long time to be doing anything. And considering that I used to think the only way to be published was to be “traditionally published”, well times have certainly changed.
It was ten years last month that I signed up to Smashwords, ten years since my first step into something that would take ten years of my life.
Who knows where they’ll be in ten years? I mean, hell, I didn’t know thirty years ago I’d be here doing this. Or twenty years ago for that matter. and the only other thing I did for ten years of my life was school as I left after year ten.
Don’t they say people find success at the ten year range? For some it’s the 10,000 hour range. But if one equates to the other…then my ten years/10,000 hours are here and I’m ready for success!
Let’s get into what I achieved in March from the list of things to get done…
– 1 – Write a short story as a reader magnet for my mailing list, AND get my mailing list done.
– 2 – RELEASE MY HARDCOVERS AND LARGE PRINTS TO THE WORLD!
– 3 – Get April’s blog post done.
The large prints and hardcovers of my four novels are now released, along with the hardcovers of the entire Porn Star Brothers series.
Yes, that’s right, the hardcovers for the Porn Star Brothers series, and the hardcovers and large print paperbacks for my four stand-alone novels, were all released on the 19th of March.
In celebration of this momentous occasion, I asked my publishing house to lower the prices of my print books across the US and Europe and they have, so my books can now be bought at a cheaper price online. Here they are in pretty little pictures…

Now let’s launch into what I want to get done in April…
– 1 – Write a short story as a reader magnet for my mailing list, AND get my mailing list done. (This will go on until it gets done)
– 2 – Get May’s blog post done.
– 3 – See where life takes me…
Wait…what?! *scratches head* That’s a new one….
That will basically be all for this year. While I’d love to get a novel written and released, and maybe other novels written, I’m not about to promise it to myself. I’ll see how things go on their own and concentrate on what does need to be done. So outside of the hardcovers and large prints, there will be no new releases this year. As far as I know…
