What is Platform?

In Writing Process by R. Brady Frost2 Comments

Not focusing on platform means my Facebook likes and Twitter follows aren’t going to skyrocket. It means my first few book releases are probably going to be slow burns. I have to be okay with that, and it really isn’t an awful expectation to have.

Just a Touch of Fall

In Personal Stuff by R. Brady FrostLeave a Comment

We aren’t the only ones left confused by this chaotic weather. The newly planted trees in my yard are having a hard time adjusting. First losing their leaves and now attempting to grow new ones. They must think it’s already spring…

Two Separate Paths

In Commentary, Writing Process by R. Brady Frost1 Comment

It was early 1995 and I was fourteen years old. I can almost remember the way the crisp spring air smelled. The snow on the mountains was beginning to creep back toward the white-capped peaks, revealing new patches of green on the mountainside. Life was fresh and new and filled with possibilities.

Learning to Swim

So, instead of crying over words that have slipped into the ether, I decided I’d just write another post to cover my recent decision to change the titles of my upcoming books. For those of you who’ve been following along, I was going to release the first book (or novella, depending on the length it finishes out at) in the Chlorophyllium Collection here pretty soon. The title of that work was Distant Worlds, with the following entry in the series titled as Final Hope. Recently, …

April Writing Update – Distant Worlds

In Writing Updates by R. Brady Frost1 Comment

Why do writers write? Better yet, why do aspiring writers fail to write? And if you really want to push the barrier, why is it that so many people think writing a book is a simple endeavor, something they might do someday if they ever feel like wasting a massive chunk of time? Oh, hell. Let’s just get it out there! What ever possessed me with this idea that I wanted to be a writer? I’m a failure. A flop. A complete and utter wannabe. I’m still here. This update actually started out as post on a private Facebook group I started for other writers, but the more I wrote the more I realized that it was much better suited …
