Indie Authors

An indie author (or independent author) is anyone who publishes their own books. Even just ten years ago it was an almost impossible career path, leaving most people to spend years pitching their books to an ever-shrinking list of publishing houses.

But things have changed! Yay!

For me, being an indie author means having the chance to virtually ‘bump shoulders’ with my readers, and immediately respond to them. I like action! And being an indie author means that the book I finish writing today can be finished professionally and ready for publishing in a matter of weeks.

I’m very fortunate to have my husband, Jim Bererton, working with me to learn the industry and grow my business as an indie author. We’re learning a lot, and figured this was a great place to share a bit about what we’ve learned and pay it forward.
