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

Thanks to everyone who entered my SHARE A BOOK Giveaway.
I loved seeing all the people you would give the book to!

Here are the 5 WINNERS of a paperback copy of Open Minds:
Sheri Larsen: 
"It would be an honor to gift it to someone else. Me thinking high school library..."

Britney Wyatt:
"I'd love to share it with a follower of our blog!"

Bethany Kaczmarek:
"Fantabulous idea!"

Rebecca J. Carlson:
"If I had a copy of Open Minds to give away, it would make the rounds at the Laie Young Writer's Club."

and finally

Gabriel Regan, who posted on her blog about the contest:
"So there is this book I really want to read, called Open Minds. It's SF, and I want to read it so bad. And the Author, Susan Kaye Quinn is giving out 5 copies. There's a catch though, after you read it, you have to give it to 5 other people, basically, you give your copy to someone else, who then reads it and gives it to someone else also, the cycle goes like that. The last person it is given to gets to either keep it, or continue the cycle. " 

That's exactly right! And I can't wait to get everyone their books, so the sharing can begin! 

I'm currently in California visiting my family, so blogging will resume when I return on Tuesday.


  1. I'm actually Gabriel, and I am male. Just to clear that up. And awesome, California is my home, and I love it. Have fun while your here. And keep up your writing.

  2. Congrats, everyone. Susan, that was such a great idea. :)

  3. Excellent ideas and places to give away the book! Congrats to the winners, and have fun in CA with family!

  4. Congrats to the winners! Hope you enjoy your trip.

  5. Wow! I can't believe it. I have a signed copy, but I've really wanted another one to give out to friends, and now I've got one!
