“Sozo” release day

Cover2 The short story “Sozo” is now available at Amazon for Kindle, IPad, or whatever your flavor of eReader. Set in a fictional near-future, it is a redemptive story focused on a combat vet who faces hard choices instead of easy answers. A hair under 5K words, it’s only .99. All the proceeds for Dec/Jan will be donated to The Wounded Warrior Project.

  1. The cover looks great, and my understanding is that a good cover is half the battle when it comes to attracting customers. I’m new to this and slowly dipping my toes into researching the self-publishing world, so any tips you have to offer, they’d be welcome. Good luck and may you receive many purchases and downloads!

    • Thanks for stopping by, then taking time to comment.
      There are plenty of sites for indie writer, most with more succinct advice than I could offer. I would only echo theirs: write what you love, edit twice, hire professional cover artists, buy your own ISBNs, etc.

      The only thing I could add would be ‘take the long view’. Writers write, so keep writing.

      My artist mantra:

      “Mastery is not something that strikes in an instant, like a thunderbolt, but a gathering power that moves steadily through time, like weather.”

      ― John Gardner, The Art of Fiction: Notes on Craft for Young Writers
