Hello, Readers and Writers. This year has been full of twists and turns for our family— I imagine many of you could say the same! Plans changed, were adjusted, or were abandoned. 2020 looks very different from what we expected. However, the limitations of this year have come hand-in-hand with blessings. Our family has had… Continue reading Publishing Paths: A Visit from Fantasy Author J. Fries

Authors who publish e-books exclusively… Continue reading My Book’s Taking a Spin on Kindle Unlimited
It's November, and that means it's time for NaNoWriMo! This tongue-twisting acronym stands for "National Novel Writing Month."

There's no shortage of online writing advice. On the contrary, when I first decided to independently publish, I was swamped with such a flood of information that it was hard to find sure footing. The terminology was tricky enough, let alone the specific strategies other independent authors discussed as I listened in and scrambled to… Continue reading What Do I NEED If I Want To Independently Publish a Book?
