Mangoose: 1) Write a crappy book
2) Let paying readers serve as editors
3) Profit

Hahahaha exactly what I came to say. Her book is just like damn near every video game now that gets released.

All she did was issue a patch.

chase_neal: Indie Author?  Never heard of her.  Kind of a cool name for a writer though...

We named the dog Indie Author.

What's this? An author changing plot points in a novel after it's written to suit a sequel? What sort of madness is this?

Ernie the Fork: I spent years studying and reading and writing to get my work to a point that I thought it worthy of putting a price tag on it.

I get paid for short semi-fiction (fictionalizations of factual events), but honestly, it's not because I have any love of the craft. It's because goddammit words are in my brain and need to escape. I thank the gods that I have a short attention span, lest I accidentally write an novel. I dread that day, to be honest. I don't even know what I would do with such a thing. I am a callous creator, so I would likely release it into the world without any preparation, where it would starve and fail to thrive.

In all seriousness, I'm not too shabby at writing, but I hate doing it.

Your blog sucks. I'm sure your book is of equal quality.

Look how I, the author, wrote this book, but it sucked, so I, the author, rewrote it and it still sucks, but ... VALIDATE ME!

SPOILER: The book still sucks.

/Have by no means read it, read plenty of bad books. There's no rehabbing a bad writer.

She writes that she took a "large hiatus." WTF? You mean a LONG hiatus? No wonder you had to rewrite your damn book. Hack.
