Exploring Gumroad: Your 101 Guide to the Platform’s Extensive Options

Early in July, in the wake of yet another debate surrounding Amazon’s overwhelming presence in the book industry (and its importance to self-publishers), I discovered Gumroad (you can all thank Bogi TakĂĄcs for that).

This post didn’t start as a list. I had some nice paragraphs about how my writing statement mission had shifted from “queer sff adventures” to stories that would center platonic relationships.

I lived for Redemption Arcs […]

A Tiny Indie Editor’s Guide To Writing Call for Submissions

I strongly believe that being indie is no excuse for not running an overall smooth show. Sure, you’ll run into hurdles. Everyone has unexpected issues. But if you mean to publish other writers, it is your responsability to gather as much information as you can before launching into your project. Know the business, even if […]
