Dear Writer-Friends,

I've been self-publishing since 2011, and I've shared the knowledge I've gained in two books: the Indie Author Survival Guide, Second Edition, and For Love or Money. I'm not an indie rockstar or a breakout success: I'm one of thousands of solidly midlist indie authors making a living with their works. These books are my way of helping my fellow authors discover the freedom of indie publishing. Write on, writer-friends!

Untraceable by S.R. Johannes Launches Today

I'm excited to be a part of The Indelibles, a group of 20 Indie authors who are launching their books this fall. I'll be able to tell you more when we officially launch the group after the first of the year (mostly because everyone is so busy launching their books right now), but I have to say, there are some seriously amazing books in this group of talented YA/MG authors. They're hitting bestseller charts already (hooray GP and Jessie!) , and I expect to see more in the future, including fellow Indelible author Shelli's release today, Untraceable, a YA thriller.

S.R. Johannes

Grace has lived in the Smokies all her life, patrolling with her forest ranger father who taught her about wildlife, tracking, and wilderness survival. 

When her dad goes missing on a routine patrol, Grace refuses to believe he’s dead and fights the town authorities, tribal officials, and nature to find him.

One day, while out tracking clues, Grace is rescued from danger by Mo, a hot guy with an intoxicating accent and a secret. As her feelings between him and her ex-boyfriend get muddled, Grace travels deep into the wilderness to escape and find her father. 
Along the way, Grace learns terrible secrets that sever relationships and lives. Soon she’s enmeshed in a web of conspiracy, deception, and murder. And it’s going to take a lot more than a compass and a motorcycle (named Lucifer) for this kick-butting heroine to save everything she loves.
Available on Amazon, or add to your Goodreads TBR.

Shelli's giving out some cool prizes for her launch party, so hop over and check them out. She also has a whole schedule of twitter parties, giveaways, and chats, so check out the schedule and see what's going on during the day. Shelli will be giving away a bunch of books, including a batch of Indie books from fellow Indelibles (Open Minds will be in the mix there somewhere).

Shelli's is a party you won't want to miss! Best of luck, Shelli! (But I don't think you're going to need it!)
