Once a week or so I will shine a humble spotlight on an indie author. This is their chance to toot their own horn, plug, sell, promote or just brag til the cows come home. Seriously, writing is a very subjective market, as we all know. Some of the best writers out there have a hard time getting their work into the right hands. It used to be enough to sit, coffee mug on coaster, cat in lap and knock-out that next best seller. But, as times – and the economy – would have it, now it takes not only hard work, but pounding the proverbial pavement to promote your work and yourself. The number of indie authors is growing faster than Twitter can keep up. I fall into that growing number, somewhere around 1,256,713 I think!
I write, but I also read and review. I love to create the stories, but I also love to hear the stories. How someone got their start… where their first big break came from… What inspires them… Who they admire as a writer. You get the idea. I’d like to provide that service to authors like myself, who without the internet and painstaking self-promotion, would never sell past friends and family.
The process is pretty simple. If this is an avenue you’d like to pursue, just visit my website for contact details and I will send you the Q&A sheet and we’ll go from there.
What do I get in return? That’s easy. The same thing you’re getting. Exposure. I’m published, but I’m not a household name. BUT, if I cross a couple hundred computer screens a day, I’m in your house and I’m getting closer! Think about it. What do you have to lose, Indie Author?
