The Internet has changed the way people produce movies, radio, and virtually every kind of creative output under the Sun. I'm not going to pretend I'm an expert in how the Internet has changed publishing; all I know is that it has. It's made it possible for writers to reach readers directly, to put their work out in public without a mediator (for better or worse).
There's a reason I describe my newsletter as me "experimenting" my way into a career as a working writer. Writing a novel at all is scary enough, but doing it in public is a tough thing. Especially for someone who wants so badly for things to be perfect before anyone sees them.
All that to say, thank you for believing in me. Your support is a massive encouragement, and I look forward to sharing my notes, progress, and even my setbacks with you.
