About Nothing Any Good

Nothing Any Good is a community. Indie publishing is difficult. A love of writing does not mean we will see our work published, nor does it mean we will find readership. Not in the least.

This site offers advice for writers and recommendations for readers. The site aims to help make sense of the difficult world that is indie publishing. It supports indie authors. It provides compelling content in the form of essays and stories provided by a variety of sources.

In an homage to the most famous writer from my home state of Minnesota, F. Scott Fitzgerald, (with all apologies to poetic song writer Bob Dylan), “Nothing any good isn’t hard.” This is a difficult path we have as indie writers. I hope I can help.

Please feel free to Contact Me with any thoughts, questions, or requests. I want to hear from you.

About the Author

Dan Buri is the son of an indie author. His father has two published books and countless article credits to his name. He has his father to blame for his passion for writing. Dan’s first collection of short fiction, Pieces Like Pottery, is an exploration of heartbreak and redemption. The book is uniquely heartfelt and explores the depths of the human struggle and the search for meaning in life. Dan’s second book, 40 Tips on Creative Writing, provides a fresh look at how to become published and find readers

Dan’s non-fiction works have been distributed online and in print for nearly two decades, including publications in Pundit Press, Tree, Summit Avenue Review, American Discovery, and TC Huddle. The defunct and very well regarded Buris On The Couch was a He-Says/She-Says blog musing on the ups and downs of marriage with his wife.

Dan is an active attorney in the Pacific Northwest. He has been recognized by Intellectual Asset Magazine as one of the World’s Top 300 Intellectual Property Strategists every year since 2010. He lives in Oregon with his wife and two young children.
