Stephen King Thinks I’m Talented

Got some great news today (sure, maybe it falls under willful interpretation – but I take the good news when I can find it!)

“If you wrote something for which someone sent you a check, if you cashed the check and it didn’t bounce, and if you then paid the light bill with the money, I consider you talented.”
― Stephen King

Not only does this apply to my copywriting service (the one I supply to my outstanding clients in Victoria and around the globe), but it also applies to my fiction writing.

A few months back, I wrote a post about getting published in 10 minutes.  Since then, there have been many changes to the Kindle Select program – but so far, all of them have been excellent.

If you’d like to take a look at a few of my semi-twisted stories, you can find them here –  (even the one called “I Blame Stephen King” is there – which has been holding its place in the top 50 of fiction anthologies for most of March!)


If you want to chat about selfpublishing on the Kindle or what my experience with Amazon has been like thus far – feel free to shoot me an email or DM me on the twitter.  I’m almost always at my keyboard, trying to make sure the lights stay on…

      Yes you are, anabelle!
      Congrats 🙂
      (if you’ve got an ebook out there, feel free to share the link.)

  1. I end up doing a lot of writing in my current job, which pays, so I’m going to count that as proof of talent!

    I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts about using Smashwords for self-publishing in comparison to Amazon and/or Kindle specifically. I’m working on a series of short books (non-fiction) that are in a similar vein to the topics on my blog and will soon need to decide how to get them out there.

    FYI the link doesn’t seem to be working.

      Hey Robin – I agree 100%, and SK probably does, too!

      I have only just started to dabble in Smashwords. I think it’s got great potential, but exclusivity in the Kindle Select program has been worthwhile to me so far, so i have reenrolled for another 90 days. It’s a bit easier to test the waters with Kindle, and use some of your free days to build your audience (but don’t have all of your books free at the same time) and then maybe look at Smashwords after the 90days are up.
      Looks like we’re both in Victoria, so I’m not sure why the link wasn’t working for you. Hopefully it was just a glitch.

      Love to chat about amazon/kindle/smashwords/writing – feel free to email and we can meet up for coffee
