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!

The Art of Being Silly

One of the great pleasures of being a writer is being silly. I mean, you can get away with some creative Silliness with a capital S that doesn't normally happen around the office cooler or copy room (maybe if it did, life would be more interesting).

Awesome author-friend and blogger Leigh T. Moore is a virtuoso in Silly, and I got to play in her sandbox for a while. Check out my interview with her, wherein we chat (irreverently) about Hugh Howie, (seriously) about my steampunk book, and how I'm really NOT a female MacGuyver. I swear.

Enjoy the interview!

Mindjack Trailer Reveal Coming Thursday, January 10th!
The bestselling Mindjack Trilogy now has a live-action trailer! With the help of over 20 cast and crew members, award-winning director Beth Spitalny brought the concept of Open Minds, the first book in the Mindjack Trilogy, to life on the screen. As the author, I couldn’t be more pleased.

Will you join me in the Trailer Reveal on January 10th?

To celebrate the launch of the trailer, Open Minds
will be on sale ($2.99 $0.99) from January 10th-17th
so if you can join the trailer reveal during that time, your readers can take
advantage of the sale as well.

I can’t wait to share the trailer! It will be awesome for the young actors in the
trailer, as well as Beth’s fine directorial work, to get some visibility out
into the world. You can read more about the making-of the Mindjack Trailer here.

If you want to participate in the trailer
reveal, sign up below, and I will send you the embed code and a post announcing the trailer by
Tuesday of this week.
