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!

Cover Reveal: Empath by @beccajcampbell Plus Sign up for an ARC

I'm happy to host a cover reveal for writer-friend Becca Campbell today! Take it away, Becca...

I'm thrilled to unveil the cover art for my latest book, the first novel in the Flawed series. Steven Novak worked his magic and created this stunning design. Empath comes out August 20th, but if you are a book blogger or reviewer, you can sign up for an ARC now (details at the end of this post).

The Flawed Series

Flawed is a New Adult series about people with super-human weaknesses, and each book focuses on a different main character, though the characters intermingle between the books. Each individual's flaw also has an upside--sort of like on Heroes or X-Men, though this series is geared more toward Romance fans. I would classify it as Romantic Urban Fantasy with a side of Suspense.


Supernatural empathy isn’t a gift, it’s a curse. Anywhere she goes, Jade’s emotions are replaced by those of the people around her.
Jade grew up in a suburb of Colorado Springs, protected from other people by her parents. Now she faces college—and the world—with nothing to shield her from unwanted feelings.
When Cam, a classmate with a major crush on her unintentionally hijacks her emotions, Jade struggles to keep from being carried away in feelings of attraction. When Ethan, a psychopath with a thirst for fear, fixates on her, the emotional impact could be lethal.
Caught in a deadly trap, Jade must untangle the emotions and find a way to use her empathic curse to overcome this killer or be overcome by him.

Want an ARC? Sign up now!

Many of my beta readers have called Empath their favorite of my stories. Want to get a copy early? ARCs will be available in about three weeks, and you can get on my list now to secure your copy. You don't have to be a blogger to get one, but you do have to agree to post your honest review to the major book sites (Amazon & Goodreads). Also, I have a limited number of ARCs and I reserve the right to deny copies on a case by case scenario.

I'm currently scheduling bloggers for the Empath Blog Tour, which begins September 16th. To participate you must be a blogger who focuses primarily on books. Reserve your ARC here. You can also email your ARC request to me at


IMG_9817 a lowresBecca J. Campbell is the author of the New Adult Romantic Science Fiction novels Foreign Identity and Gateway to Reality, and Sub-Normal, a series of short stories.

An avid lover of stories that tiptoe the line between fantasy and reality (even when they plunge off one side or the other), Becca looks for new angles on bridging the gap between the two. She holds a special place in her heart for any story that involves superpowers or time travel. Her passion is defying the limits of her own creativity. You can find her on her Author Blog, Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Pinterest, and Amazon.
