I is for Indie Life

A few weeks ago, I signed up for Indie Life and today is my first post! Yay!

I get to now inspire you or just talk about my experiences.

So my experiences so far have been pretty amazing and pretty daunting. After publishing my debut novel through Spencer Hill Press last year, I grown more confident in my career and in myself.

Last December, I published my first self-published work, "To Love or Die in a Steamy-Reamy World" and this summer, I'll be self-publishing another work, ALMOST NIGHT.

I can't say I knew exactly what I was doing (or even now know exactly), but I'm learning and I'm loving it. I used to see self-publishing as a step down and now I see as the beautiful opportunity that it is.

If you're self-publishing soon, I say good for you! You will absolutely love it! 

If you are MUCH farther along in the journey than I am, you are amazing! I am so grateful for all the people who've paved the way these past few years and giving self-publishing the wonderful reputation it deserves.


  1. Best of luck to you on your indie journey!

  2. You are one of my inspirations! I've been following your astounding success for sure.

  3. I don't have the technical know-how to self-publish, but I'm happy with a small indpendent publisher who deals with all that side of things!

  4. I'm certainly not further along the road than you, so it's encouraging to hear your success story. Good luck as you continue down this writing road! I'm signing up to follow you via Networked Blogs--looking forward to more of your posts!

  5. Congrats on all your success!! I intend to self publish as well, but I'm not anywhere near being ready for that yet!

  6. The best part about it is that you get to learn as you go along, and there's always something new to learn. Good luck with the upcoming book.

  7. We self-published this year, and boy is it an adventure! There is so much to learn about it that you don't know until you're in the midst. Working on the ebook now and that is a whole new challenge.. Best of luck :)

  8. I love the idea of being an indie author but I haven't completelySimply Sarah decided yet. I just finished my first novel and I have enough revising to keep me busy for quite sometime. Hopefully I will know what route I want to take by then!


Yay! Comments! Oh, how I do love them! :D
