Happy Tuesday, D. D. Scott-ville!
I'm thrilled to announce that over the weekend, my next non-fiction book released, and it contains all my Secrets to Indie Epublishing Success!
Here's the scoop and all the links too on my new page For Writers in D. D. Scott-ville:
The release of this book got me to thinkin' about all the Bitchy Signs I've collected that sooo work for Business. In other words, these are the signs that have given me the courage to stay the Self-Publishing course until I succeeded.
For example, I'd tried for 10+ years to break into publishing the Traditional Way by submitting to agents, editors, and New York Publishers. But not until I had the courage to first say "wow, the TradiPub system really consists of piss poor business practices" and then act on that fact did I have the courage to try Indie Epublishing/Self-Publishing.
For years, even after I got the high-powered agents and got the attention of big-time editors and New York publishers, and had deal after deal fall through, people still thought I was nuts and would never make it.
Finally, I decided I'd waited long enough for other people to "choose me" (i.e. publish me). I was ready to try it on my own...on the new road that hadn't even been paved yet...the Indie Epub Yellow Brick Road to Publishing Oz...
I took a lot of nasty heat for my decision. But who cares?! I sure as hell didn't. I just wasn't convinced that New York was right and that despite the fact that they loved my books, "no one was buying that kind of book anymore." My gut told me that was total bullshit.
So I had to:
Brush up on my Diplomatic Skills...
Because, let's face it...
And really, after I've now sold over 100,000 Ebooks, those same Ebooks that New York Traditional Publishers said would never sell, I can answer them like this:
It's really this simple:
I gave it a try...with my own D. D. Scott spin...and wow, because of all of you, I'm sooo very glad I did!
Thank you for making all my wildest dreams come true!
I luv ya, D. D. Scott-ville! Y'all Rock!!! --- D. D. Scott
P.S. And remember, whenever someone tells you "You can't do that," think D. D. Scott and say "Oh Yeah? Watch Me!"
