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!

S.K. Quinn, Independent Author of Science Fiction

My Three Year Indie-versary: Win An Indie Publishing Consult with Susan Kaye Quinn

I've been indie published for three years, ever since this baby came out:
Published 11.2011
permafree on Amazon
still getting reviewed almost every day

I'm no Hugh Howey, but I hang with some pretty high roller indie types, and with 45 titles on Amazon (what? how did that happen?), I know a few things about indie publishing. Enough that I wrote a book to help first-timers get their start in the wild and rollicking indie world.
published 10.2013
4.8 out of 5 stars on Amazon with 55 reviews
still relevant today but second edition coming in 2015

The ground is constantly shifting in indie land, so launching a new career (or even a new series) in 2014/15 is going to be different than when I started out. But as I watch new authors start their careers, and launch new series myself, much remains the same. And I'm learning new strategies all the time. Data, people! I loves it.

To celebrate my Three Year Indie-versary, I want to share some of those insights with you! So I'm offering up consults for two writer-friends who are indie published (or soon-to-be).

WHAT: A consult on how to grow an author career with your works
WHEN: At our mutual convenience, via email
WHO SHOULD ENTER: Anyone who has indie published, or soon plans to, and wants honest feedback from an experienced indie-published author on how to boost their author careers and achieve their writerly goals.

  1. Fingers crossed! The IASG was a life-saver for me before I published. I recommend it to everyone.

    Okay, not my grandma or the guy at the pet store, but my writer friends who are looking for advice. :)

  7. Congrats on your Indie-versary! Your one of the main reasons I have no desire to be traditionally published! You're writing the stories YOU want to write and not waiting for some flunkie to deem your work good enough! The Third Daughter series is pure genius!

    1. Wow, thanks for those kind words about Third Daughter! And yes... writing the stories you want and love is one of the BEST reasons to indie publish. Thanks for your sweet comment!

  8. I recently purchased your book on indie publishing and also downloaded Open Minds which I'm in the middle of now. I just wanted to thank you for sharing everything you've learned in your book. I'm still undecided which publishing route I want to go, but it's so great to have access to info from someone who has been through the indie process. Oh, and I'm loving Open Minds so far! :)
