I was delighted to join other local authors at my fabulous library’s 2017 Indie Author Day. (For my 2016 recap, click here) It’s a great opportunity to learn what’s fresh in the indie publishing world. I feel lucky to be writing in the post self-publishing revolution. I am grateful for the authors who have paved the way to working as a hybrid (both self-published and traditionally published–my ultimate goal).
One big takeaway this year: no matter how an author is published, you have to be paying attention to marketing. Social media has changed the game and, I think, encouraged interactions between readers and authors. I’m on most social networks but really enjoy the informal, conversational style on Twitter and Instagram. Be sure to connect with me there.
