Why I Do What I Do



Why bother #writing at all? Why go to all the trouble of--on top of a full-time job and everything else that life throws at you--to put in all the effort and work of #indie #publishing Blood Brute, a whole book series dedicated to #vampires surviving a #zombie #apocalypse?


Well, simply, because I know that no one will publish what I write. Not really. Although I've won several writing and poetry awards, done the whole residency and festival thing, just plain writing what I want is what drives me. I don't have time to query all the things in the vague hope (as an unknown and un-networked writer) that someone MIGHT pick up Blood Brute one day.

I'd much rather roll up my sleeves, learn the ropes, and get the stories out there at as a professional level as I can manage! Reaching readers with Rise & his coven's story is more key, to me, than the prestige of trad publishing for Blood Brute.
