The Not-Really Death of the Duo by Julie
TODAY’S BREW: the delightfully artificial Dunkins Hazelnut, home brewed
NOBODY DIED, BE QUIET.
And the Undead Duo are still the best of friends, Hangover-style.
….but there’s two of us. But like that. I think I’m Bradley Cooper.
Kristen and I still hang out all the time, we text hourly, I babysit her bird, she deals with me. But this blog started when we decided to embark on the journey of publishing together, many moons ago.
Then we did that.
Now we both are still all in with publishing, but we took different routes. Kristen went indie far sooner than I caught on to do. Because guys. You guys. Traditional publishing is not my bag, baby. I just plain cannot deal with trying to please people that aren’t my readers. Kristen figured out a long time ago that indie was better, more in contact with her readers and actually made her some money.
I never claimed to be the smart one.
While Kristen forayed more toward romance and paranormal (check her out here: http://www.kristenstrassel.com/), I went weirder. Big shocker, I know.
Part of our journey together was kicking the baby out of the nest. Wait. You know what I mean. Now it’s time for me to stop clinging to Deadly Ever After, and acknowledging myself as an indie author! Which I’m excited to do! Because while Kristen and I are still a duo in every sense of the word, as an individual, I’m THIS:
I AM PRETTY SCARY. I AM BOTH PRETTY AND SCARY AND PRETTY SCARY. AND I WRITE PRETTY BOOKS WITH SCARY INSIDES AND SCARY BOOKS WITH PRETTY INSIDES.
COME TO MY NEW BLOG, PLEASE. https://juliehutchings.net/ There will be cake and sharks and swordfights.
Instafreebie is awesome, by the way.
Pretty Scary Author News will tell you everything I’m cooking up, and guys. It’s coming along super fantastically. But it takes a little time, so be patient. Still going a helluva lot faster than traditional.
Still bother me @HutchingsJulie on Twitter. You can get all the links you want from me personally if you so desire.
This is not the end of things, it’s new things. And I’ll probably still pop by here because NOSTALGIA. But I’m also a don’t look-backer. Get that damn newsletter, and chase me around like a butcher and a turkey on Thanksgiving.
Love you all and thank you for continuing to be a part of my party!
