The Greene Machine

When it comes to writing, things have never been tougher. Competition is stuff, the market saturated, publishers less inclined to roll the dice, and profit margins slimmer than ever. But it’s still doable, making a living from writing. Just not how it used to be. In 2023 (and beyond), writing is a business, and authors have to be both artists and entrepreneurs to make it.

I’ve dedicated the last decade of my life to writing and learning how to make a career of it, and this Substack is where I’m going to share it all. Insights into publishing and self-publishing, and interviews with big-name authors in both the indie and the trad spaces. Stay tuned to learn what it’s like to be a writer in today’s ever-evolving publishing landscape.
