Well, I guess I should start this new blog off by introducing myself. As you may have guessed, I am Batman… no wait… forget that part… I said, forget it! Seriously, stop thinking about it! I am really author James Fuller. You’ll see my name all over this webpage. The guy who made it (who isn’t and never has been Batman) is kind of vain.
Like many of you, I have been writing for many years. For twelve of those last years, I have been writing books and publishing them. This is why we are here… I think… getting to the point of why we are here, I promise.
On my social media, I get asked dozens of questions a week from fans, readers, and most of all, other authors. Some who have been writing for years, others who are just starting out. Questions ranging from the writing process, editing, publishing, marketing, and everything in between.
I have always tried to answer those questions to the best of my ability. Though I don’t know everything, nor have I ever claimed to. I do know a lot. Learned from over a decade of trial and error.
The world of writing, publishing, and marketing is an organic beast. It is forever changing. What worked when I first started twelve years ago no longer works now. Even what used to work back then died off and now has come back and works again. And half the time, by the time you figure out what is working, it’s already changed on you. Fun times.
(here it comes)
So that will be the point of this blog as your intuition has likely led you to… your Batman-like intuition if you will…
This blog will be me discussing my experiences and knowledge of writing, publishing, marketing, and all that in-between.
Note what I just said!
That part is super important. More so because I will be talking about several “controversial” topics that many authors tend to get heated over. This is not the intention of these topics when I talk about them. They are informative pieces of what I know and have seen. You don’t have to agree, but always keep an open mind; you might learn something useful from it to apply to what you have found working for you. Knowledge is power.
I will be posting every Sunday. Most will be written blogs, but I might throw in a video blog, too, just to spice things up every now and then. I will also be featuring Indie Author books and links to the said book at the end of every blog. I am here to try and help other authors. This way, even if my words are garbage and of no help, maybe someone will sell a book at the end.
If you read the blogs and have topic suggestions, please feel free to leave a comment about it so I can add it to the list and get to it at some point for you. There is a lot to talk about, so if people request specific topics, I will know which ones to hit faster.
I don’t know about you, but I feel good about this. I hope you do too. That is if you are still reading this and haven’t abandoned me for Twitter or Facebook, and all I am doing is talking to myself now… I swear it gets better. So be sure to come back next Sunday, bring a friend or two and alcohol.
Now back to the Batcave… erm… I mean… store…
Indie Author of the week:
"The monster isn't beneath the bed. It is in the mirror swallowing at all the vile things it wants to say, choking on bile to make them go away."
Wayward priest Cris Corelli rids himself of the sacred collar and leaves town, boarding the midnight train with no destination in mind. Satan is following him - lurking in the shadows.
Corelli finds himself at an unassuming boarding house run by beautiful, yet tortured, Jules. She has her own secrets. They are the kind that echo in the mind, despite the screams that are meant to drown them.
On Thanksgiving Day, 1985, Cris and Jules are bonded by a senseless act of violence that brings the small town to its knees.
They indulge in drugs and alcohol to numb the pain, and together, they teeter on the edge of darkness.
What they don't yet know, is that Satan still lurks.
Warning: Dark themes throughout.
