I wanted to update, but life intervenes….

This is one of those days where I either slept too much and not enough. I am tired, whatever the case. Yes, I think you can sleep too much and it makes you tired.

I have pulled a muscle in my chest wall, on the right side, on the side of my bony juncture where my ribs join(my breastbone?) It’s extremely painful and no matter how I hold my arms, if I move, I flex it. I know how I did it. I yanked on my backpack one-handed and tossed it over one shoulder. I have to work today, and I guess ibuprophen is in order. Moving my arms in any direction just hurts.

This is going to be a brutal day. But I’m a trooper and plan on working through it. I went out of town over the weekend and really got nothing done. I can’t do that; it flatlines my production plan.

Today I planned to blog about my favorite authors, and how they inspire me with the way they handle their success. I think it would be a great subject for aspiring authors, (I always get questions from them).

But because I really, really need to get out of the Interwebs and get some serious work done, I’m going to keep it light, but give you the best advice for authors that I have in a quick easy-to-read format.

-If you’re looking for good advice on how to be a better writer, check out Writer Groupie. It’s a great podcast, and the guests all have a better handle on writing than me, so their advice is solid.

-If you’re looking for info on how to e-publish your books and get into it, check out the Kindleboards or Kboards as they are lovingly called.

-If you’re wondering how to self-publish and build a business with it, check out Joanna Penn’s business site, The Creative Penn. She’s the expert on all things Authorpreneur.

This is a very short list. The bottom line is, if you want to go indie, you have to get out there and do your due diligence and find out. There are so many great sites and so much info you will have to surf a lot to find the nuggets amongst the dirt. But hey, if I can do it, anyone can, right?

OKay, back to formatting on book two. A real update about that coming soon!
