Today is the official launch of Interviews with Indie Authors: Top Tips from Successful Self-Published Authors, so a very exciting day!
Let me share with you the story behind this book…
Tim and I were inspired by my journey into self-publishing in February 2012. I found lots of books to help me with the technicalities of self-publishing, but what inspired me and helped make my own books successful was reading the stories of authors who’d been there and done it, and done it successfully. I wanted to learn from the masters and find out what tools and techniques they used to ensure success. I knew it wasn’t down to luck, but hard work, and I wanted to get it right. As my own books hit the bestseller lists, I began to be asked how I’d done it and what advice I could share. That’s when the idea for Interviews with Indie Authors hit me. I knew that different authors had very different stories and strategies, so why not collect them all together and publish them to help newbie authors? The book was born.
It’s a wonderful book because the authors concerned have been so giving. Their stories are truly inspiring and their advice is sure to help other authors navigate their way through the minefields of self-publishing, marketing and promotion.
