The Indie Roadshow was a great success in the sense that it got people talking and asking questions. I don't want to convince writers one way or the other that it's the right way to go, only that it's an option.
If you missed any of my stops, or would like to bookmark this page for later use, here is the whole itinerary. (I'll be removing the Indie Roadshow page later this week.) Also, if you have any specific questions, don't hesitate to ask. If I know the answer I'll be glad to help.

The heat continues. We will be breaking our record for consecutive triple digit temperatures this Friday. It can't last too much longer. (I hope.)
It got me to thinking about a topic that bugs me. I read my news off the internet. The benefit of digital news is that you also get the chance to read the comments people leave. I like reading the comments almost as much as the news. But I am surprised and appalled at how hostile people become when they can hide behind anonymity
There was a recent article about the Texas heat and there was a comment from some yahoo saying, "It couldn't have happened to a better group of people. I hope they all die."
Is there a purpose to such ugliness? I wonder how brave this guy would've been if he had said that in a roomful of suffering people. Elderly people have died in this heat. This guy ought to be ashamed of himself.
How do you get your news? Do you ever read the comments from internet articles?
