Hello there reader!
Thanks for finding my website. I don’t know how you came across it. Maybe you read my, at the moment, only book I self-published on Amazon. Maybe someone told you about me. Maybe finding this site was pure accident because you misspelled some famous person’s name. Either way, you’re here. So, thank you for that.
I’ve never done a blog before, so I’m going to wing this.
My name is Ryan Muiller, and I am a writer who is going to try to be an author. The first step, according to many books I’ve read and online articles, is to actually write something. The second thing is to have a website. So here we are.
As every writer knows, every life is a story. The story I want to tell with this blog is my journey of becoming an author. I don’t expect to become JK Rowling famous from this. I just want to share with others, with you, what has or hasn’t worked for me and other things I’ll learn on this road.
At the time of starting this blog, I have self published one book. The first edition has sold a grand total of 3 copies: one to my aunt, one to my junior high librarian, and one to a random person who left me an eye-opening, and jarring, review.
Now I’m out to do better. I will be re-releasing the book within a few months. And then, I’m going to really try at the normal publishing route. I still plan on self-publishing a few books, mostly just to give you, reader, an idea of how it is done and if it is the right path for you.
I have five goals for myself as an author.
1. Be published in a Scholastic book fair. (Or even with Scholastic themselves.)
2. Publish 3 trilogies
3. Have the one of my stories be pitched for a movie or TV Show. It doesn’t have to happen, but I would like to be considered.
4. Do a book signing.
5. Be nominated for a literary award. I don’t need to win, I just want the nomination
That’s it, those are my goals. And this is my journey from nothing to possible moderate success.
