There are lots of blogs out there on publishing and writing in general, several good ones with out-fleshed tips and loads of content and inspiration. But I thought there was room for one with quick and practical tips for the busy author, because we all know the author should do one thing above all else — write. But before I start blogging, I would like to tell you a little about myself. My name is Kylie Day; I’m 25 years old and live in Europe. I began planning this blog when I felt like I wanted to take my dream of publishing books more seriously. As long as I kept writing stories for myself I wouldn’t ever be an author, and figured I needed a kick in the backside. This blog will be my kick in the backside — a sort of constant reminder of what I really want with my life.
I read a lot about writing and publishing — as much as I read fiction — and believe this blog will be a kind of repository where I collect everything I learn through reading and during my own publishing process.
My own publishing process will begin with a series of non-fiction eBooks I’ve planned to publish on Amazon around the middle of this year. It is as much for me to make my dream come true as it is an experiment and a source of experience I want and need. During this process I will share everything on the blog to give you insight on what it’s like to publish your work.
I don’t know where this will lead, and I’m sure I will do a ton of mistakes along the way, but that’s a part of the learning process, isn’t it? And, you know what? It’s going to be fun.
