WRITER WEDNESDAY: How to Find A Cover Artist [CC]

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.

Today’s question comes to us from patron Kristen Stevens, who asks:

How do you find a cover artist that you like?

That’s it. That’s the question.

Hello Rebels, and welcome back to my life.

I wanted to share something with you today. This week, the second week of June 2015, has been my best writing week in two years, and by the end of the weekend, unless something really unexpected happens, it’s going to be my best writing week EVER.

The Five Best Things an Artist Can Do

The Five Best Things an Artist Can Do

Good morning, Rebels, and welcome back to my life.

I’m an artist, and you might be, too. And you might entertain ideas of making a living from your art.

But that can be really hard to do. It’s hard to manage yourself as a business and finding an audience gets more difficult every day.

But there’s one problem that can trump all other problems when it comes to making a living as an artist—and that’s failing at the art itself.

Most of the time, though, “failing” in our art isn’t as simple as writing a bad book or painting a bad painting or whatever.

There’s a few common reasons for why we fail, and here’s how to fix five of them.

VLOG: Do Everything

VLOG: Do Everything

I’ve talked before about feeling overwhelmed with all the things I’m doing and all the things I need to do and everything that’s going on all the time.

Right now I’m behind on my writing, I’m not vlogging every weekday like I should be, Vloganovel is sporadic and Garrett’s Games certainly doesn’t have the viewership I’d love for it to have.

And NONE of these things, nor all of them combined are providing my full income so I take editing jobs to finish paying the bills, and that time just eats even more into all my other time like my writing time and YouTube time and gaming time.

It can be frustrating because no one avenue is where I want it to be…yet.
