What I learned from self-publishing

It’s been roughly six years since I published my first paperback – The Betrayed. Although I’ve published books before (technical stuff) in digital format, my official entry into the world of independent authoring, the way people perceive it, started in 2012.

A nice dozen. That’s a sizable volume of publications, and I believe I can share some of the lessons and insights I’ve learned since.

The sci-fi book is complete

Ladies, gentlemen, extraterrestrials! Another novel nailed. Roughly two months since I started writing the book, it is now complete. One hundred thousand crisp words.

The Paradox.
