I'm the eldest of three siblings, a stay-at-home father of two daughters, the husband of a wonderful wife, and an indie author of life-expanding character fiction. When not writing, I read, watch old TV and movies, play bass guitar, and tend to my family in our Boston-area apartment.

CG, Phil, Vijayendra, thank you! And you’re welcome! Thanks for submitting your posts.


Thanks so much for posting my blog in your carnival. I hope it is helpful. This is a great list of resources. I tell people that “writing is an art and a business” and you’ve really nailed that in your blog carnival. I’m honored to be a part and look forward to your future blog carnivals.

It is really very encouraging to see more authors recognizing the need to look at their writing as a business. I know that goes against our grain as story tellers but if we want to get our stories in the hands of people who will enjoy them we need to get better about finding out who our audience is, where the people are, and how they make reading decisions. Once we understand that-we are better prepared to get people connected with what we have to offer. If we remember it is NOT about us or what we want to get out of the book, but rather what we can GIVE to our reader, we will be ahead of many others!

Kind Regards,
Tiffany Colter

Hi, Tiffany. Thank so much for your comment. I agree completely. The business aspects of being a writer are so important, and publishers expect authors to take charge of the most important of these. As an author, you are self-employed.

BTW, thanks for submitting your article for the Carnival. I had not discovered your blog until I read your submission. Love your blog and site, and wish you the best.
