Happy Birthday JK Rowling & Harry Potter!

I know, I'm a dork, but I can't help it! My name is Alex Apostol, I'm 31 years old, and I'm still obsessed with Harry Potter! I'm sure I'm not the only one, right? Anyway, today is not only the Chosen One's birthday, but also his creator's birthday!

Graduate School for Writers: Marketing Plan

If it wasn't for schooling being free through my work, I probably would never have gone back. Once I completed my Bachelor's Degree in English (which I still feel was totally useless for me to get to be an author. All I did was read books and write reports on them, which I could have done on my own.) I swore to myself I was DONE with school for good. Never again would I write a research paper or thesis. But once I dove into the self-publishing world of indie authors I realized that only about 10% of writing actually has to do with writing! The majority of the success of your book depends on good marketing skills! CRAP!

I SO Need to Start Writing Again!

I just wanted to put out a quick post, mainly because I've been in the bad habit of ignoring my website (all for good reasons, I promise!) I haven't really been writing much in the ways of manuscripts either the last few months, but I think I'm ready to jump back into it (and for realz this time!)
