A couple, I didn’t want the main character to fall into a routine. Do you outline? Trifecta’s cover designer did the art. More “plan” with some measure of “winging-it.” Any advice that you would like to give to other newbies considering becoming Indie authors? The validation is heady stuff, cathartic.

It’s not about writing to a genre or the lowest common denominator. Certainly not Literature. Both. I have to pretend to have influences for the sake of convention. Nope.
