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!

Happy Birthday, Open Minds!

Open Minds released one year ago today! 
One year, and going strong...

Here are a couple of readers that love Open Minds, and happen to be hosting me today for interviews/guest posts/giveaways:

Sher A Hart: Guest Post on Dystopias plus a giveaway (your choice of a Mindjack ebook, plus the novellas).

Cover Contessa: An interview in which I talk about getting twitchy when I can't write (seriously not a problem this month).

Avid Reader's Haven: Another interview, with a nod to my needy cats, and another ebook giveaway.

Finally, I have a paper copy giveaway of Closed Hearts going on Goodreads.
