Writing a book will change your life. The Indie Author will show you how.“Learning indie publishing grew me up in a lot of ways, including in areas I’d been avoiding owning as my true self. The control, the pursuit of my own vision, the responsibility of having to make so many decisions and making them—it all made me a better, more self-loving, more empowered, more generous, and happier person.” ~ Alice Archer
“I’ve always loved detective stories. The first books for grown-ups I read were the Agatha Christie novels. I must have read them all by the time I was fifteen. In my own writing, I like being able to throw up all kinds of clues, put in twists. Crime seemed to offer the best medium for me to do that.” ~ Blair Denholm
”Undoubtedly, that agent’s rejection letter pushed me to become a better writer. But once I’d written and polished it for publication, I couldn’t stand the idea of losing years querying again. I needed to get my book out there. So I self-published and never looked back.” ~ Cynthia L. Schneider
“I realize that I’m essentially doing the same thing now that I did then; I’m writing about people who have histories of abuse and trauma finding and learning to love themselves.” ~ Katherine Turner
“I never expected to be a writer until I started hearing the voice of Addie Mae Aubrey, the Southern, African-American narrator of my novel. She was very insistent that I tell her story, so I began to write her words that I heard in my head.” ~ Lynnda Pollio
“Writing fills me with joy. It lets me feel creative and challenges me every day. Not long ago, I had to give up my profession because of medical reasons and I never thought I’d find that kind of passion in my work again. Writing has brought that spark back into my work life.” ~ M.C. Sheridan
“Find a writing group. Find a group of people you click with and you like interacting with. They can be in the physical world or just online. And then just talk with them. A lot. Share the journey together.” ~ Mike Ripplinger
“I am a slow writer. It took me around four years to complete it, from draft to editing (and more editing, and more editing) to shopping it around, to more editing, and finally choosing to self-publish.” ~ Patricia Correll
