Love You With a Razor
I've even considered taking those two Amazon Shorts, which I now have the rights to again, and making them e-content for the Kindle. The only problem is, I would never use a Kindle or any other e-reader, so why would I expect others to use it to read my stuff instead of pushing it in print form. A bit of popular advice is that if you are going to buy stock, buy it in something you use. I think the exact opposite is true, too. Don't put stock in something you don't use. I don't use an e-reader, so I'm not making something exclusive to that.
There are, of course, other options. There always are. I'm not ready to go those routes yet, as they are not the backup plans I want to engage. Self-publishing is still in the picture, too, but I'm still not sure that is the way to go.
With the editorial change at the North Coast Journal I wonder if there is a bigger place there for me. The article I did on Willow Creek paid well. I've been told it is looking for more critics, too, so that may be an avenue worth pursuing if only for potboilers.
Seeing old friends tonight and this weekend may inspire me to step up the game a bit more, too. I feel like I haven't been devoting as much time to this plan as I should be, but stepping it up as I have been has been a good step in the right direction. If anyone has any good ideas, I'm more than happy to hear them. Writing jobs, publishers, affiliates (not AdSense, as my account for this blog is yanked for good), or anything else, I'm open to it. I've written for plenty of magazines in my time -- some good (Tattoo Savage), some not so good (UFO). It's not always my favorite type of writing work, but it's a check and exposure. Savage and Film Threat opened a lot of doors. Now I need to open some more ... especially if I want this current manuscript published. Man, that one is going to be a hard sell ... at least in America.
