Dawn is breaking on the long dark days of being an unpublished writer. In a matter of a month, I should have a book in print.
For me, indie publishing has been bitter-sweet. Self-publishing carries a stigma that a writer isn’t good enough if they don’t snag an agent or publishing house. But after observing many skilled and talented writers (some previously published through traditional publishing) receive rejection after rejection for representation, they too have turned to indie publishing.
From the mouth of my published and award winning writing mentor, “Despite everything, it’s still exciting to indie publish–our stories in print, books to sign, and readers to reach.”
