Indie, Not Lonely

Grime Beat cover5aI’ve been feeling pressure to independently publish for a while, now, but have struggled with self-doubt and fears.

Grime Beat is coming!

Meme Vintage sweep11I’m having so much fun getting ready for my solo flight into indie publication! Yesterday, I set up some of the pages that I want to include at the back of the book.

There’s just so many things that I’ve never given much thought to before.

We’ll see if it happens.

So GRIME BEAT releases on Tuesday, April 14, 2015. Please give a shout out about this debut!
