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!

S.K. Quinn, Independent Author of Science Fiction

  1. Do you think I'm even capable of giving away a book gift card?

  2. Fun giveaway! off to tweet about it. :)

  3. How fun! I love this idea. And what a great prize.

  4. Tweeted and stumbled this post. :)

  5. Are you sure you don't have a degree in marketing instead of physics stuff?! :-)

  6. You are so clever! I totally wish I would have thought to hold the Kindle or my hand in front of my face. Shoot!

  7. What an awesome giveaway. The timing is perfect for Christmas. You certainly rock!

  8. Hey, I finally got a chance to read Open Minds. I devoured it in about a day and a half - it was very unputdownable (is that a word?). It was really good. Good concept, likable characters, fast paced.

    Look for a review on Goodreads, Smashwords, etc. sometime soon (I hope).

    Hope it's selling a lot - it deserves to be read.


  9. How exciting seeing all those copies of OPEN MINDS.
