A is for Authors

A[1]A is for Authors

I love my little world of independent authors. Some are friends and some are clients… and many I consider to be both.

Social media has made it easy to connect with many independent authors, and what I’ve found is most of them are down-to-earth, humble, friendly people.

There are those who don’t think of independent authors as “real” writers because they aren’t published by one of the big-name publishing houses. I admit, I have read some pretty crappy self-published books, but there also is a lot of talent out there.

Many independent authors’ e-books are free, on Kindle Unlimited, or are much less expensive than the traditionally published authors. I had the “what have I got to lose” mentality when I downloaded my first few free books on Amazon. In return, I’ve been introduced to a whole new world of authors and genres.

I encourage you to check out some independent authors… you might be pleasantly surprised.

  1. I suppose I read about 4 to 1 in favour of indie authors these days, but that may be because I spend most of my time online! In general, I think the indies are better story tellers, although the traditionally published may be ‘smarter’. As for typos… way more likely to have poor formatting and proofing in a trad published book converted to kindle, in my experience.

    Nice to see you AtoZing again 🙂


  2. Indie authors are awesome! I know tons of them, and hope to be one someday as well. Even traditionally published authors are trying it out in order to be more well-rounded publishing-wise, which is always good. Happy A-Zing!

  3. I really enjoyed catching up on your blog today. I’ve thought about you several times during the past year, but unfortunately never saw one of your posts in my reader. I had my own significant trials this past year (not to the same extent as yours, but my dad unexpectedly passed away in Sept and I can relate to the grief). Anyway, it was good to catch up and I’m eager for more of what you have to write this month. Glad to connect again!

    • Thank you, Paige. I’m so sorry to learn about your dad. 😦 It is not easy to lose a parent. It’s good to be “back.” I’ve missed reading and writing here.
