Lit World Interviews

The Indie author does much more than write. There are all the learning curves, fiddly bits, and marketing. We are our own publicists. Hugely successful authors like Ann Rice can have as many wobblies as they want to online, but they’ll still be selling lots and lots of books. She’s also traditionally published anyway, so what she does doesn’t besmirch Indie world. I’ve seen enough shame inducing, call your mom a donkey dramas lately from some Indie authors online to wonder what the spectators who just read for pleasure must be thinking.

    Excellent post Jo. Many times I bite my tongue, as I love to voice my opinion, but no no, not for the cyber world to hold my words for ransom, forever.
    PS. I loved your book, ‘Fly Birdie’. I just read it last night and left you a review.🙂
