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!

Closed Hearts Book Blog Tour - Day 1 of 4

Wow, people!

You rocked my socks on the Closed Hearts launch, and now that we're back from the long weekend, Closed Hearts is on tour. Book Blog tours are really about getting a work in front of new readers by having someone else (Book Bloggers) review and post tidbits (interviews/excerpts/bonus content) about the novel. My blog audience (that's YOU) has already partied with me (THANK YOU), and I don't want to bore you with a whole week of Closed Hearts promotion. I'm only posting the blog tour information on the off-chance that you might be interested in some of the guests posts, interviews, etc. Plus there's giveaways! So there's that. Next week, we'll be back to our normal blogging program, including a new feature I'm calling Critique Wednesdays (more on that next week).

For now ...

Thanks to all the Book Bloggers who are touring Closed Hearts! (Book Bloggers Are Made of Awesome)

Today ...
