Before we were authors, we were avid readers. I may have been inspired by authors such as King, Straub, Koontz, and Layman…but that inspiration was only possible because someone, somewhere, took a chance on these writers and got their work to print.
Today’s next great author faces a different world. The possibilities are endless, but the road to discovery is challenging. I may never be a best-seller, but the satisfaction of having a venue for my work is enough to feed my commitment to write.
That venue, however, exists for only as long as there is a reader’s desire for independent authors. The success of any Indie author is a success for all Indie authors. I believe the best thing we can do as Indie authors is to support our fellow authors. This benefits not only the business of writing, but ensures a diversity of quality written works, not regulated or determined by a handful of “experts” who are confined by economics to publish only the next thing that looks like the last thing.
That is why I am devoting both my time and this space to interviews with Indie authors. A place for you to learn about them, about their journey, and maybe even to support their work.
