In this week’s vlog, I’ve done a book review of the young adult science fiction novel Invictus by Ryan Graudin. As Graudin’s web site indicates, it really is like Doctor Who meets Guardians of the Galaxy—except with teenagers. 🙂
When I first ventured into fiction writing, convention wisdom was to never self-publish one’s work. This amounted to nothing less than professional suicide. Writers who self-published were looked down upon as poor, pathetic desperate souls who didn’t have the talent or persistence to impress agents and/or publishers (especially the ones in New York, aka, “real ones”).
