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!

Return of the Sith, er, ME

Back from a 2 week social media break? Check
Perspective, adjusted? Check
Ready to blog again? Yes, please, thank you.

Stuff that happened while I was away:

Made some scones.

Did some grilling.

Met Amanda Hocking.

Met Lisa Cross. 
(As well as hung out with fellow Indelibles Megg Jensen and Karly Kirkpatrick.)
(Look for giveaways of these signed books coming soon ...)

And some stuff happened on the internets...

Blog Ring of Power - These ladies were kind enough to host me in a series of FIVE interviews:
Kelly Hashway wrote a wonderful review of Closed Hearts for YA Bound. I love this part:
"There is an action sequence (the climax) that had me on the edge of my seat, tearing through the pages. It was so intense and awesome. I loved it."
Kathy Higgs-Coulthard of WOW (Women On Writing) interviewed me, Nan Willard Cappo, Bryan Chick, and S.R. Johannes, on Divergent Paths to Publication. This great article shows how the path to indie publishing is as unique as the author traveling it. I was thrilled to be asked to contribute, and learned much from reading the responses of my fellow writers - I hope you do too! (Full disclosure: S.R. Johannes is a fellow Indelible.)

I'll be back Monday, recharged and reinspired, with new blogging fun. 
That's the kind of thing that makes an author's heart sing.


  1. Sounds like you've had a good break :)

  2. Welcome home! Are there any scones left?

  3. Welcome back! What a wonderful way to return, huh? That blog tour looks great. And you're right. That review quote is... beyond what an author could dream for. :) Congrats!

    You got Amanda's new book! I've been seeing it everywhere! Let us know how you enjoy it!

    1. Wake really looks awesome - it's about sirens! And Julie Cross's book looks cool too - boy POV time travel! Yum. :) I got signed copies of both to give away on the blog, but I think I'll wait to read them first... :)

  4. wowza, that's a lot going on! no wonder you needed a break.
