Indie Publishing So Far

Morning all!

I’m still new to the indie publishing scene and all that goes along with it, but I’ve really been enjoying it so far. What I’m really enjoying, although at times it can be a tad stressful, is the fact that I’m responsible for everything. I’m sure that at times it’s probably not in my best interest to do everything myself, but it’s a learning process. It also helps to satisfy all of the creative activities that I enjoy doing. 

Drawing/Painting – I make my own covers (for now) and also draw some images to help keep me interested in the story.

Filmmaking – I make my own trailers (again, for now) and while they may not be the most professional looking at this stage, I am in control of what is shown and how it is laid out.

Music – I’ve been playing music since I was 6 (so 22 years) and aside from my side project called Silverback Sasquatch, writing and recording music for my trailers helps to satisfy my musical urges. 

As I said, for now I’m involved with all of those aspects but in time I would like to hand over the reigns to some others. Once (If) I can get myself established as an indie writer, my goal is to get other indie artists involved. Get a local band to write the music for the trailer while an indie filmmaker can make the trailer. In theory it would help promote them as well as myself. That’s the idea anyways.

Well, time to go finish off a story and start a new one!
