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!

A Roundup of My Popular and Recent Posts

I neatly organize things when I'm procrastinating. You would think my house would be spotless, but I wear the messy as a badge of honor that I'm not procrastinating most of the time.

I've updated my For Writers Page - you'll find the usual information about the Indie Author Survival Guide, including two free webinars on Facing Your Fears and 10 Ways to Survive Indie Publishing, and now a roundup of some of my popular and recent posts, in case you missed them the first time around.

  1. And a very productive procrastinator you are! Thanks for easy access to these posts. Your blog has been the go-to source for much of my self-pubbing questions lately.

  2. "Decide for Yourself" is my favorite on this list. That was some advice I needed to hear right now.

  3. I will have to reference these. Also, you're way more organized than me.
