Today we're doing a different type of interview, and it should be enlightening to both writers and readers following the blog.
My guest today is Dan Buri. Hello! Welcome back to Writing in the Modern Age! It’s such a pleasure to have you here again.
As always, Marie, thank you for having me on your site and for all you do for the indie community. You are a great resource for us all and a great author.
Wow! Thank you! :) That's very kind...
Can you tell us a little bit about your writing community venture and how Writing in the Modern Age readers can benefit from it?
Sure! Nothing Any Good is a website designed to inform and support the indie author community. I think experience is the best teacher, but a lot of good can be gained by learning from other people’s experiences too. I slogged my way through trying to navigate getting my book to publication. When I was done, I realized I had inadvertently gained a wide range of knowledge on the self-publishing process, and a large community of author friends that have a wealth of knowledge as well. I figured, why not try to leverage our collective knowledge to support other indie authors on their own journey to publication.
I am, or at least I pretend to be. The public at large is still undecided on whether it agrees with me that I’m a writer. I’ll keep you posted.
Your readers can, of course, see my blogging on Nothing Any Good, but that is mainly web-style writing and far from what my published content aims to be. The main genres you can expect from me are literary fiction and memoir-style essays. Although I was encouraged recently by an author of cozy mysteries that I should try my hand at writing a genre-based series. She seemed to think I would be good at that. I’m not so sure.
