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!

Dystopias: Forging Hope For Humanity

I'm guest posting over at Dystopian Domination (is that a great name, or what?), talking about my take on dystopian literature as thought experiments that help us carve out a better future.

HOP OVER to check out the post and enter to win an ebook copy of Open Minds!


  1. Great guest post! I think the thing about dystopians is that one man's idea of paradise is another man's hell, and thus utopia becomes dystopia (and thus we have human nature).

  2. Since you are an authority on dystopias...would you consider North Korea a dystopian society?

  3. Can I just echo Bryan? Very well said. I totally agree.

  4. Just finished Open Minds yesterday, and loved it! I'm looking forward to the next book, and plan to post a review pretty soon. Would you be willing to do a short interview or a guest post at my blog?

    1. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I would be happy to do an interview (just send me an email with your questions - susankayequinn (at) comcast (dot) net). I look forward to reading your review!

  5. I like dystopias. Then again I like anything that challenges me as a reader and a thinker.
