Hench Mensch

Accomplished Today (So far): Two pages on the electric typewriter. I wrote about Ygor, a middle-aged henchman, looking for work after his Master is slain by an angry mob. I’m noticing a running theme of unemployment and people being bad at their jobs in my writing. Coincidence?

Writing Relevant Article: I’m a self-publishing failure, by John Winters. I know he’s playing it up for the sake of humor, but I do feel his expectations don’t exactly map to reality. Also, it appears he fell into the trap of springing for the Amazon KDP royalties deal that offers a higher percentage per sale with the added stinger of deducting various microscopic costs with each transaction. I publish using the straight 35% royalty method, and I don’t have to worry about losing money when I offer my work as a free promotion.
