It’s been over two years since I first started the blog. Initially called “The Independent Author,” I’ve recently renamed it “Go Indie” for a snappier title.
It’s been just over a year since I first began publishing and I thought it’d be appropriate to put everything I’ve learned in my first year into one book. That way, aspiring indie authors who use the Go Indie blog as a resource to plan their debuts won’t have to search through my site in order to find whatever it is they’re looking for.
Not only does the book collect my posts from throughout my first year of publishing, but I’ve updated each post with a reflection after a year in. My opinion of some things changed, my opinion of others didn’t. Basically, in that year I’ve gained perspective and have further defined what type of author I want to be.
I’ve also asked three of my friends to contribute a summary of their first year, so you’ll read about the first year of Sever Bronny, Andrei Cherascu, and Libbie Hawker.
