I Write Books to Conquer This World

So as a general rule, I’ve always considered that quality is worth more than quantity in the writing world. If you have a hundred books out but all of them tell the exact same story and are garbage, then I don’t care that you might have fifty best-sellers.

However, I’ve found more and more that I seem to be in the minority on that opinion. There are plenty of people out there who say that they key to being successful is to simply put out more and more and more work, as much as you possibly can, and stop worrying about being good.

I’ve been involved in several debates in regards to book life and whatnot. You’ve seen a few of them: e-books versus paper books, Kindle vs. Nook, writing in books vs. not… There’s been a bunch of them, but none has ever garnered as strong of a response as one I entered into unknowingly.

The battle of the dust jacket.

Vlogs and the Video World

I’m not sure if I’ve touched on this before, but since I wrote two blogs last week and almost forgot to write one this week because of it, I suppose I need to say SOMETHING! Ahem. So let’s talk about something I’ve been wondering about for a while.
