What is Next Draft?

Next Draft is a growing community of curious creatives interested in indie publishing, self-care, and spirit.

I’ve recently started a year (plus) long series on indie publishing and marketing. I made so many mistakes and learned so much while publishing and marketing my book Rock Gods & Messy Monsters. I hope to help other aspiring indie authors avoid the mishaps I encountered.

I also hope to encourage more people to take charge of their career and publish independently.

I’ve also recently added a new section/newsletter Rock Gods & Messy Monsters for articles based on themes in the book, including female empowerment and the search for self.

Every quarter, I'll publish a ‘zine covering everything over the previous three months, along with interesting tidbits I picked up along the way. And though they might be a bit less frequent, I will also publish pieces about self-care for creatives and my journey toward my spiritual truth.

A Little Housekeeping

​​A little housekeeping. In case you’re interested in specific topics and not all of them, Next Draft is divided into various sections, so you can pick and choose what you receive.

Substack has made it very simple for you to choose which section/newsletter you’d like to receive. Simply click on the “Unsubscribe” button at the bottom of any email. The page that comes up will give you the opportunity to unsubscribe from a specific section or from the entire newsletter.

(Unfortunately, as of writing this, you’re not able to decide which sections you want when you sign up. Hopefully, Substack will provide this functionality shortly.)

Thanks so much for being part of the Next Draft community!
