Don't Panic: More blog changes on the way

Total Read Time: 1 minute

["Hospital 4" by rweller]

A few weeks ago, I announced my plans to change to an author blog. I’ve already taken some of the necessary steps, but in order to relaunch the site the way I would like, more changes are on the way.

Here’s what’s going to happen:

  • All reading, writing and self-publishing related posts will be imported to my new blog, Ebook Formatting Made Simple. (This has already been done.)
  • will be stripped down to the remaining personal and book news posts and revert to the naked Blogger domain: (Currently redirects to
  •  The new version of will relaunch with new hosting, content and design.

I’m hoping this process will go smoothly over the next few weeks.

What to expect from WaywardScribe Version 2.0:

  • Quality posts geared toward my readers and the general public
  • Less frequent updates. (Probably about once a month or so.) This means fewer posts to keep up with amidst all the other blogs you may be following.

So hopefully I will see you around on either Ebook Formatting Made Simple, or the new version of (And I apologize in advance for any bumps that come up during this process!)

Have a question? Let me know. :)

Separate Ways: Splitting my Blog

Total Read Time: 1 minute

["Take the High Road!" by maxpate]

This blog started off as a place for me to share my venture into the world of self-publishing, as well as any tips or tricks I learned along the way. A few weeks ago, I decided to double my posting to twice a week so I could focus on writing/publishing tips on Tuesdays and fantasy/readers’ perspective on Thursdays.

Now that Soul Seeker is out, I feel like it’s time for this site to become a pure author blog. All of my previous posts on writing and self-publishing will still be here, but my future posts will cover topics such as fantasy, readers’ perspective, news about my books, behind the scenes of my writing process, etc.

If you’ve been following this blog for indie writing and publishing tips, never fear! I will continue to post on these topics over on my other site, Ebook Formatting Made Simple. All of the previous posts from this blog that cover writing and publishing have been archived there as well.

So whether you’re a fan of my work, or an indie writer looking for some insight (or even if you’re both!), I hope to hear from you soon, either here or on Ebook Formatting Made Simple.

Thanks for reading!
