I’m so excited that I finally published my first e-book to amazon kindle! Now that I’ve gotten that out of my system, I can’t express enough how truly amazing the Indie Author experience has been for me. I think the fact that writers, who otherwise would have been pushed aside or overlooked by traditional publishers, have been given a platform in which they can share their unique writing talents and stories is an incredible opportunity. I love that writers can make the first several chapters available for readers to decide whether or not they like the quality and writing style of individual authors. As a reader, I love having this option afforded to me, before I purchase a book. I admit, I had no idea that promoting my own book would be so challenging, but I love a good challenge. I’m new to the twitter community and many of the Facebook groups that I’ve recently joined, but I’ve met some amazing writers and supportive readers along the way. As busy as I am with my own personal and professional life, I find myself wanting to one-click, like, comment, re-tweet, and leave reviews for fellow authors. We have all been blessed with an amazing gift, and it is so nice to finally feel like I’ve found a place where I belong. I feel absolutely at home in the Indie Author community.
Best regards to you all,
