Before this journey, I spent 20 years in executive sales in the healthcare industry and earned my Master’s Degree. I opted to leave the corporate world after my second child came along to pursue the dream that I had carried inside for as long as I can remember – that of writing a book.
Flash forward to now, five years later… I have written three novels – Falling Through Trees, This Side of Perfect, and The Days of Not So Long Ago – and I have another MS (manuscript) in the works.
I was ‘green’ coming into the field of writing, although most of that color has since rubbed off. I learn more and more about the publishing industry and the profession of writing every day. There are many resources, groups, and classes out available, but self-published authors face so many challenges when it comes to marketing their work.
Receiving your boxes of books and finally seeing your labor of love in print is breathtaking… but it is also overwhelming. It reminded me of when my husband and I brought our first child home and asked one other, “Okay… so what do we do now?”
My vision for Indie Books Unleashed is for authors to help others authors by expanding reader base, market reach, and obtaining online reviews. Ultimately, to become the primary distribution method for indie authors’ book giveaways!
Every self-published author who signs up adds value to the program, so if you’ve just signed up, welcome. If you haven’t yet, consider the opportunity to obtain new readers where you would never have reached them before.
And, as always, keep writing!
