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!

Debt Collector Photo Teaser #4 PLUS Eliza Tilton's Choose Your Own Adventure Hop

(if you're here for the CYOA blog hop, scroll down)
 "What's your life worth on the open market?"
Broken (Debt Collector 4) by @susankayequinn


I'm part of a cool blog hop where bits of a story are told at each stop, like a "make your own adventure" story! This is in celebration of Eliza's new release, Broken Forest. (Also avail at Kobo and B&N)

If you’ve landed here during your adventure, skip all this and go below.

If you’re wondering what’s going on, go here to start your own adventure!

And may The Creator bless you on your journey.
My part of the story
Even if there is one wolf, you can handle it. This is what you’ve prepared for. You won’t be frightened.
With a hand on your weapon, you walk back to the clearing, admiring the bright stars in the sky, which is free of wandering clouds. It’s a beautiful night, and you’re in high spirits.
While you walk, you sense you’re being followed. There’s no snapping twigs, or ominous rustles, but you can’t ignore this feeling of dread shadowing over you. You take a deep breath and observe your surroundings.
The way ahead is clear, and if a creature is chasing you, you won’t have any protection. To the right you see a large tree; the branches are just within your reach. ON a hunch, you scramble up the tree.
And just in time.
A winter wolf appears at the base, sniffing. Its ears stand straight up, listening. From where you are, you can just make out its large teeth dripping with saliva.
You breathe as quietly as possible and don’t dare to move.
The wolf looks up. Its eyes glow a sickly yellow.
It sees you.
But thankfully, wolves can’t climb trees. You may be stuck here for a while, but soon the wolf will grow bored and move along.
Congratulations on not being eaten.


Book goodreads blurb:
Hopeless he'll never be more than the boy who didn't save his brother, 17-year-old Avikar accepts his life as the family stable boy, trying to forget the past. But when his sister, Jeslyn, is kidnapped, the thought of losing another sibling catapults him on a desperate quest. With his best friend by his side, and using the tracking skills he learned from his father, he discovers Jeslyn has been taken, kidnapped by one Lucino, the young lord of Daath, a mystical place thought only to exist in fables.

And Lucino has plans for Jeslyn.
