Rez girl lived in 4 states, traveled to 4 states as well as Canada. Live life to the fullest each day.
I am Bear Clan. I am an Elder. I am a Jingle Dress dancer. I hope you enjoy my stories. I learned to tell them from people on the rez.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Writing. I must admit this isn't the first thought in my mind though. After all, I am grateful that I am awake to greet the day. I listen for my sons movements as they get ready to go to sleep. Ahh, we are a topsy-turvy sort of household. Comes from years of working unconventional hours. Then my latest project percolates into my mind's eye and I leap out of bed. I have spent the better part of the day doing various things on my computer. So, yeah, the end goal of a publishable book is in sight.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
being a noob. I knew from past experience in sales how important it is for a quality product. Course all this was at a time when opportunities to self-publish was better than before. Wanted to have at least one book out there where I might have a better chance of getting a traditional publishing contract. Ahh, times and goals change. Still gonna be an indie author though.

I like the idea of your Meatgrinder. One issue for me is the different formatting styles required for publishing. Editors required different formats for their reading, not always what the copy editors wanted, so about 3 different versions of my manual had to be saved.
I'd have liked this style guide when I was learning how to use Word. I learned most of the tips you mention through trial and error. I followed along using one of my rough drafts and found I'd have to do a lot of re-formatting even though it's an .rtf file. Thanks to your publishing this book, I can do all my files right the first time.
4 stars - there's always room for improvement.

Good reading. I like the story and the ending was a surprise.
Didn't read the bonus story yet. Will do so later.
