Photographer sues Blogger--YIKES!

Please read this >article< if you post photos on your blog! I tend to use Googled photos though I always link to the site, but I'm not taking any more chances and am combing through my posts (YIKES! so many...) to remove every one of them.

I still need to find out where to find photos that are safe to use without repercussions. If you have such an one, please post the link in the comments!

Good luck if you do use photos that are copyright-possible and let the ErAsInG begin!

baby steps

It's amazing what turns life takes us, and we are left with a choice. There are so many things I've been faced with the past several months that I feel lost in the woods. For starters, traditional versus non in the publishing world. I've seen first hand many things authors enduring things that make me balk and weep for them when it comes to traditional. True, that option does give you a marketing buffer compared to the non, but is it really worth all your hard work when you get only cents per book (practically, c'mon exaggeration was invented for a purpose)?

I'm not quite sure if self quite fits my needs; I still have a lot of "growing up to do" where it concerns which to choose. I almost feel like Alice in Wonderland, faced with a road in which I need to choose. However, unlike Alice I know which NOT to choose. So perhaps that narrows it down a bit.

It still does not make it any easier.

For now, I'm sticking with hauling tail in just writing. Marketing Darkspell has grown more difficult since I have no other books out, but I'm like a dormant volcano waiting for its time.

How's your journey? Has it become more confusing the further you travel, or clearer?
