Just like anyone else, I'd love to be working under contract with a traditional publisher, but since that's not currently in the cards it's important, for the sake of morale and courage in the face of the manuscript in progress, to embrace my independence.
Yea, to celebrate it, even.
I have fun with the @PlaidRaccoon Twitter account. For example,
The Plaid Raccoon urges peace talks in war between Toronto City Hall and Raccoon Nation: http://t.co/GiIqB1ZRUs ;)— Plaid Raccoon Press (@PlaidRaccoon) April 9, 2015
The Raccoon Twitter persona has sort of taken on a life of its own. I have fun tweaking the beak of the Random Penguin while promoting our publications and otherwise fishing for notable trout in the ever-flowing Twitter stream.
So why not, in the spirit of embracing independence, spread the fun to Facebook? This way, the rascally raccoon isn't limited to 140 characters. Hmmm, on second thought......
