10 Things You Need To Do Before You Self-Publish

Self-publishing isn’t for everyone. There are writers who are great at their craft – but they would fail if they’d self-publish, simply because they weren’t cut out for this. You can learn, from your own mistakes, from reading other self-publisher’s blogs, but the truth is that there’s no recipe, no universal formula. And there will never be one.

What’s maybe ironic is that it’s not the writing that makes the difference. Oh, far from it. Continue reading

irevuo – February 2013

I’m going to be as brief as possible because I don’t want to waste your time. Basically, we need your help, so we can launch a new issue of irevuo magazine in February. In order to obtain the much needed funds, we set up a new Indiegogo campaign here.

Why do we need money? Continue reading

Irevuo Magazine – January 2013 issue (Digital Edition is free)

cover1Okay, so I’m now announcing the official launch of the first issue of irevuo magazine. And the digital edition is free. You can download it here.

This month’s topic is self-publishing. We’ve got a bunch of interesting articles about self-publishing and stuff. Each month we’ll have different main theme… February’s going to be about photography – at least that’s the plan.

Bitterly alone in a world that’s trying its best to keep us as from achieving our destiny.

Sometimes we feel this life resembles a war. Every day is a battle, every day we have to wake up and choose to fight or not. We choose whether our own dreams and ideals are worthy of the tremendous energy we’re wasting just too keep them alive. Continue reading

The Midnight Muse

tmmSo I decided to do a sort of daily thing on irevuocalled The Midnight Muse. Basically, every midnight I write a post about inspiration and art, or just post a picture, a video, a song, something that’s supposed to kickstart your creativity somehow. You can check out the first post in the series here.

You can also subscribe to receive the posts in your e-mail inbox via our newsletter widget in the sidebar (where you can also subscribe to our daily and weekly newsletters.)

irevuo is online… beta mode for now

On a completely unrelated subject. I think I figured out what the funny noises my computer is making mean: something’s wrong with the hard drive. Or at least, that’s my theory.

What’s that got to do with anything? Beats me.

On more important topics. A couple of days ago I managed to irrevocably fuck irevuo’s theme (and most of the installed plugins.) Oh, sorry for saying fuck. Anyway, I bought a new theme, new plugins, changed a lot of stuff around, didn’t sleep. Continue reading
