Hello, Writer, and welcome back to my life.

It’s Writer Wednesday, the day where I give you my tips and advice on the art and the business of writing, and tell you how I do what I do as an indie author.

Hello Rebel, and welcome back to my life.

So I took off most of March and half of April to spend time with family. And while I was gone, my YouTube channel passed the 4,000 subscriber mark!

WRITER WEDNESDAY: How to Get Amazon Reviews

Hello, Writer, and welcome back to my life.

It’s Writer Wednesday, the day where I give you my tips and advice on the art and the business of writing, and tell you how I do what I do as an indie author.

I’ve gone through many evolutions in my thoughts and thinking about what makes good writing, and how speed of writing plays into good writing.
