Indie Author Reaches for the Sky and Finds Publishing Heaven

I’ve been featuring guest bloggers who’ve had some success with self-publishing, in print and with ebooks. Some have been traditionally published and others have ventured out as indie authors. By having many authors writing in various genres around the world speak about the publishing experience and sharing helpful tips, hopefully their insights and suggestions will smooth out your road to success.

Today’s guest post is by author Debra Holland from California:

Indie Author Advises to “Just Do It”

I’ve been featuring guest bloggers who’ve had some success with self-publishing, in print and with ebooks. Some have been traditionally published and others have ventured out as indie authors.

A Successful Indie Author Gives Tips for Introverts

Over a number of months I’ll be featuring guest bloggers who’ve had some success with self-publishing, in print and with ebooks. Some have been traditionally published and others have ventured out as indie authors. By having many authors writing in various genres around the world speak about the publishing experience and sharing helpful tips, hopefully their insights and suggestions will smooth out your road to success.

Today’s guest post is by author Donna McDonald from KY:

As a writer, I am a natural introvert who uses writing a story to escape from real life. It’s one of my favorite author perks. In full introvert mode, everyone in my life watches me burrow down into the writing, the characters, and what is going on in my head. But how do readers find the books of introverted writers like myself, who just want to set them free in the sales channel ether of the Internet and cross their fingers? Continue Reading…
