I is for Indie

Today is all about Indie (self) publishing! I’m an indie author as well as a traditional author. I like to dabble in both because each offers different benefits to my career as an author. It seems like the publishing industry is changing every single day and no one really knows where it will go next. I want to make sure I have as much longevity as possible so I can keep writing books, so I publish in many different ways.

Writers: Do you indie (self) publish or do you every plan to in the future?

Readers: Do you pay attention to whether or not a book is self-published or traditionally published before you buy it? Does it make any difference to you?

I have two indie (self) published books. The trickiest part of self-publishing is connecting with your readers and getting them to even find your books, let alone buy them. So since you could all be potential readers, here’s the blurbs for both of my books! They are available on Amazon!

Maia’s been banished to Earth from her place among the stars as the eldest sister of Pleiades… and all because Orion won’t stop chasing her around the universe. Now Maia has to find her way back to the stars with only the help of hunky astronautics scientist Zander while staying hidden from Orion.

Zander never expected the discovery of his lifetime to fall into his lap, but when Maia also falls into his bed, he knows there’s no way he can turn the goddess who has stolen his heart into a science project. With his best friend ready to sell him out for fame, her wannabe lover Orion chasing after her on Earth, and time running out fast, Zander must fight to keep Maia safe long enough to get her home.

If going home means losing Zander, is Maia ready to go back to the stars?

Sunny California? Not so much. Amelia’s stuck at the office retreat in frickin’ Lake Tahoe with a grabby colleague who thinks he’s God’s gift to women. At least the workshop presenter is super hot… if only she can get him to take her from the bunny hill to the bedroom.

Amelia Brooks agrees to a weekend retreat in California, thinking it will be held in sunny Malibu only to find out she’s stuck in chilly Lake Tahoe for four long days–just what a girl from Minnesota wants to hear in the middle of winter. Now instead of wiggling her toes in the sand, her feet are squeezed into her new manufactured-by-Satan-himself-uncomfortable boots. If that’s not enough, Amelia’s obnoxious colleague William has decided this is the weekend they’ll finally be together and he won’t keep his thoughts–or his hands–to himself.

Amelia’s ready to kick off those boots and peel off her wooly sweater once she meets Nate Miller–the workshop’s hunky presenter. But Nate’s not ready to settle down. He’s seen his workshop buddies fall in love then fall out of the running for being promoted to the big city workshop circuit and he’s not about to let that happen to his life’s dream–until he gets involved with Amelia. Now he’s not so sure he can walk away at the end of the weekend with his heart intact and his promotion in hand.

Now Amelia’s got four days to stave off William’s persistent advances long enough to fall in love with Nate and possibly…learn to ski the bunny hill.

    I didn’t know much about Indie publishing (and am still learning) when I started last year. Author Joan Reeves encouraged me and my first two e-books, “Mr. Short, Dark…& Funny,” and “Mr. Tall, Tan…& Tasteless” went live on Amazon last fall. I now have two more books at the site, “Sweeter Than W(h)ine” and “Three Strikes–You’re in Love,” a short story collection, at the site.
