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

Sheri Larsen's Grand Giveaway

Blogger and writer friend Sheri Larsen has signed with a lit agent, and she's blowing the doors off with a fantastic giveaway to celebrate. There's all kinds of cool things in this giveaway, including a 3-chapter critique from yours truly and an e-copy of Open Minds.

Here's more from Sheri ...

Today, I invite you to celebrate with me!! I've signed with Literary Agent Paula Munier of Talcott Notch Literary! 

By June of this year, I'd grown tired of waiting to catch the interest of an agent, too many near misses and almosts. So, I decided to submit my YA novel MARKED BEAUTY to publishers on my own. Within the first two weeks, I'd gained a few offers from publishers, and then another and another. On some amazing advice from fellow writers, I decided to query a few agents, letting them know about my offers. To make it short, after a wonderful chat with Paula via phone, I came to the conclusion that she had a similar vision for this manuscript as well as my career as an author. I decided to sign with her.

And because our literary community is so freaking fabulous and generous, I'm having a Bigger-Than-A-Shopping-Mall GIVEAWAY!! The giveaway consists of:
  •  two separate Rafflecopters with multiple giveaways 
  • and one grand prize Rafflecopter giveaway - to enter for the grand prize, you must enter either giveaway #1, #2, or both. 
The giveaway is open until September 27thWINNERS will be announced on September 28th. (Entrants may win more than one prize!)

Thank you so much for entering, spreading the word, and celebrating with me!!

  1. So excited for Sheri. I'm helping her celebrate tomorrow.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing in this time with me, Susan! Everyone has been so amazing. So glad others will be able to benefit from my cheer!!

  3. Congrats Sheri! I'm Tweeting to help spread the word. ;)

  4. wow. massive giveaways. I can't even choose between the prizes. I'd love to get the Elana Johnson books, or a gift card to support my habit.

    I think it's awesome that this giveaway is for signing with an agent. That is a major milestone!

  5. Wow this giveaway is epic! I entered the second one; I'm hoping to win the signed hardcovers of of POSSESSION & SURRENDER by Elana Johnson :)

  6. I entered both giveaways. What wouldn't I LOVE to win?? So many choices! I'd love to win gift certificates. Then critiques. Then any/all books. I'm running low on my TBR list!
    THANKS for the giveaway! This is boss!

  7. Thanks for a fabulous giveaway! I entered #2 and #3 but I'm not a writer so I think I shouldn't have entered #3. The books all sound fantastic!

  8. I love reading books especially very good series, we have a little book club at my job and we read the books together...I would love to win the series and the gift certificate for the jewelry store, I just love jewelry.

  9. I'd love to win the Gorgeous Onyx Pendant and/or the books, or the gift certificate...I want a lot of prizes haha I am greedy.
    Cheers for the chance to win.

  10. How completely awesome is this?? I love celebrating with authors - you always have the best swag!

    Yes, I entered both. As for what I'd like to win . . . normally I'd say one of the GC for books or possibly one of the signed copies, but the gorgeous onyx pendant sounds - well gorgeous. But then again, the GC for the jewelry sounds equally lovely. So basically, one of each would be grand! =) Truly, it would be fantastic to win any one of the items listed.

    And sending a very big CONGRATS to you Sheri!!

    Cheers! Trayce (@lemonamour)

  11. I'm entering both giveaways now and I'm so excited! How amazing is this! I can't really decide what I'd want to win. A critique would be amazing!

  12. I entered #2 and I would love to win the Onyx Pendant, the GC's or the books - all of the prizes are wonderful!
    Thank you :)
