For something a little different, I used the Spreaker Android app to record this episode while walking the track and discussing how exercise can help with creativity and ways of drawing inspiration from the activity and location. Fair warning: though I cleaned up the noise quite a bit, the audio quality is still off a bit and I was breathing heavily because it’s stuffy up there and I walked over half a mile while talking 😛
Longer than expected episode to give some brief Aisuru updates, my knee & a trip on the light fantastic (aka me and pain pills), Deviations revision progress, and updates on my reading.
After some Aisuru first month numbers updates and sales announcement, I talk briefly about Google’s search engine change before going into the main topic – answering questions from Goodreads! Fair warning, I wasn’t feeling well while recording so I am a bit slow at the start and may have rambled a little more than usual in a few spots.
Another extempore episode this week thanks to all the overtime. More Aisuru updates, including the hardback finally being available and that hinted at Giveaway, some quick remarks on Indie ReCon, and a little internal look at dealing with professional envy.
All over the place in this shorter episode as I give my quick opinions on my latest read, give you an update about Aisuru, try not to vent to much about the delays with the hardback, talk taxes, and hint at a potential upcoming giveaway!
This week I share Aisuru’s most of the first week trickling sales numbers and talk about my search for reviews. Also share some news about the proofs and my giving in to Goodreads.
I am now officially a published author! Aisuru leaked out a bit early in a few places, though official it doesn’t come out until March 27th. Meanwhile my way overly tired self is reviewing some of the things I’ve learned from this first publication experience so far.
For a bit of a different type of guest appearance, my buddy Madeline dropped in to visit, laugh, and do a great interview with me about Aisuru! We talk about a TON of stuff, including some inside looks into how Aisuru came about and “behind the scenes” of the story (mildly spoilerish at times). Oh, I also do the official 2R announcement and the store release!
Aisuru’s launch date is revealed as well as other launch details in this over caffeinated episode including formats that will be available, platforms, and potential pricing. I also talk about some options that will not be available and why.
Goofed a bit and sort of overlooked doing the episode earlier this week! But it’s here now, so after catching you up on playing Final Fantasy X and revising Aisuru, let’s talk books! Specifically I talk a bit about why I’m really liking the manga series My Love Story!! before going into the main topic – a full discussion/review of Write. Publish. Repeat. The No-Luck-Required Guide to Self-Publishing Success by Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant, hosts of the Self Publishing Podcast.
Other than fawning over my new whiteboard, this episode pretty much gets right to the point (*gasp*) as I talk about how I went about finding an editor for Aisuru, what the process has been like thus far, and what’s next for Aisuru!
