Stealth Ninja Unicorns

July 31, 2011 by


So, you know how I was having trouble figuring out the framing of the backstory? Apparently the way to solve this is to write more backstory from yet another time frame. (No, don’t ask me to explain how that helps. I don’t know how it helps.) And the backstory has a lot more blood in it […]

The Paul Habit

July 29, 2011 by


Why am I doing this? I’m asking myself this question… why put my entire work out for free, and even be considering self-epublishing?
