a few things about me

I've suddenly decided I don't just want to share how-to articles for other indies (see here), even if I'm very passionate about indies being able to make a living from their art. I'd rather express myself fully (or, as much as possible), and invite you, my reader, into my life a bit more.Hopefully these points that follow will allow you to do just that.
