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!

New Release: Rise of a Rector, by Heather McCorkle

The final novel in Heather McCorkle’s channeler series, Rise of a Rector, has released! To celebrate, and in the spirit of October, Eren from the channeler series is here to tell us about a scary moment in her life. Take it away Eren!

Eren: It was the thick sort of dark that kind of defines the color charcoal, you know, when the night blocks out the stars and swallows the streetlights. Footsteps echoed behind me, but they were in time with mine so it took a while for me to realize they were there. I glanced back. There was movement in the shadows. I picked up my pace but the footsteps kept time with me, echoing through the empty streets of town. By the time my house was in sight I was running. When I turned to close the door behind me and throw the deadbolt, eyes flashed in the darkness.

Check out Heather’s blog for a new tour stop each day until November 2nd. To thank her fans, and future fans, Heather’s historical fantasy novel (a standalone novel that ties into the channeler series) will be free Friday November 2nd and Saturday November 3rd on Amazon. And if Heather gets over 1000 downloads of To Ride A Puca in those two days she’ll give away a $10 Amazon or B&N gift card! So spread the word, get ready to download To Ride A Puca, tell all your friends to download it, and drop by Heather’s blog now to enter to win the gift certificate.

You can find all three novels in the channeler series (The Secret of Spruce Knoll, Channeler’s Choice, and Rise of a Rector) on Amazon and B&N, as well as other retail sites. The channeler novella~and prequel to The Secret of Spruce Knoll~Born of Fire is currently free on Amazon and B&N and you can find a short story about Fane from the series in the FREE anthology, In His eyes.


  1. That is a rather scary moment. So very happy for Heather. Wishing her the best with this latest release.

    1. Terrifying! But I made it through and that's what counts. And thank you so much!

  2. Congratulations to Heather. Looking at your sidebar, whoever does your cover has an eye for hot young men. I have to give my approval.
