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!

Today is a special day for the Desi Diaries! The third story, Tattered Dreams, is out today! AND, available everywhere--and that goes for Personal Demons and The Seer, too!

Up until now, books one and two were only available on KDP Select, but now? They are everywhere! Huzzah!

So here's a little reminder, and a celebration with a giveaway!
Personal Demons
(Desolation Diaries #1)

What do you do when your past comes back to bite you in the ass--with very sharp, pointy teeth?
James thought life was good--living in Paris with Miri, not a single bad guy in sight. 
Until the goddess Hel came to reclaim him.

The Seer
(Desolation Diaries #2)

She's always been the one protected, shielded from the darkness in the world. But Miri wants to be as capable and strong as Desi and James. She wants to control her visions so they can actually be of use, actually give her friends an advantage over the dark.

When her visions reveal an enemy fixated on James, Miri must face the evil alone, and risk everything to do it.

And introducing . . .

Tattered Dreams
(Desolation Diaries #3)

Miri has seen Akaros’ return—and James’ death. But James has been to Hell and back and refuses to let Akaros rob him of his future with Miri. Desi might not be there to save him this time, but James is determined to save himself.

And the Giveaway!
Also, if you share my news on your blog anytime this week or next, send me the link and I'll enter you to win one of three awesome signed books!


  1. Thank you so much, Susan! You're the best!

  2. So awesome that Ali has all the Diaries series available everywhere now. Woot!

  3. Serious giveaways! Fantastic help books on craft and technique.

    I love Ali's books. Congratulations to her!

  4. Vogler's The Writer's Journey is immensely helpful for character archetypes. I've paired it up with Stuart Voytilla's Myth and the Movies, which I've found more helpful in terms of plot
