Indie writers-everything you know is wrong

“Everything you know is Wrong” is one of my favorite Firesign Theatre comedy albums. If you are unfamiliar with Firesign, their website is http://firesigntheatre.com/index2.html.

I think the title is apropos for Indie writers, especially us e-book writers. We are told that social medial is important, that we should all have blogs, that a high number of Twitter and blog followers is important. But is all that true? Or is everything we know wrong?

Today I am submitting two other blogs for you to read and think about.

The first is Anne R. Allen’s blog on what most writers are getting wrong. http://annerallen.blogspot.com/2014/03/building-platform-what-most-writers-are.html

The second is Writers Village interview with Kathie Shoop who has sold over 100,000. http://www.writers-village.org/writing-award-blog/how-to-sell-100-000-novels-without-really-trying

Indie writers need to digest all information to further their career, so I suggest these blogs to further chart your course.

One response to “Indie writers-everything you know is wrong

  1. Well, Kathie Shoop sold 100,000 novels without a blog, mailing list, Facebook page or platform whatsoever. So I guess those gurus who tell us we won’t hack it as authors unless we have Klout score of 99 plus a big cartel/tribe/platform, etc, are peddling fairy dust. Perhaps we should just: tweak the Amazon algorithms and leave the time-sucking vortex of social networking to sad souls who are very lonely.
