I'm excited to finally let you know that I've taken your advice and published my first six Black Spectre stories on the Kindle (iPad and POD in the works).
Your "Twin Sons" post was perfectly timed, since that's the exact same game plan I'm using myself. I priced it cheap to help build an audience for future titles, and will continue to do so. Yes, I'm making my "own damn media." Your blog has been very encouraging.
