IndieView with Angie Flores, author of Cub’s Wish

I love people and hearing their stories of growth. If so, do you do so extensively or just chapter headings and a couple of sentences? End of Interview. What are you working on now? Believe in what you do. Rowling started me reading again after a long hiatus from working and having a family. The Art teacher at our local school took my stories as […]

IndieView with Max Everhart, author of All the Different Ways Love Can Feel

Called “Five O’Clock Lightning,” the story is about a middle-aged high school math teacher, who tries out for a minor league baseball team with the help of his son. The first story I wrote in 2005 while I was in graduate school at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The word “struggled” has a negative connotation.

IndieView with Cameron Solnordal, author of The Tears of Regret

Once I feel like the world has really started to take shape I then try and find a way to build the reader into the story. If you have ever found yourself taking a step back to look where we are going but you can’t stop being pulled along, hopefully this will give you a bit of weight to slow it all down. About the […]

IndieView with Evonda Michelle, author of Betrayal

Did you get your book cover professionally done or did you do it yourself? If so, do you do so extensively or just chapter headings and a couple of sentences? Any advice that you would like to give to other newbies considering becoming Indie authors? What made you decide to go Indie, whether self-publishing or with an indie publisher? I’m embarrassed about many aspects of […]

IndieView with Crystal Hope Reed, author of How to Live with a Psychic

End of Interview: For more from Crystal visit her website or like her Facebook page. I like telling people what to do so the advice giving came really easily. My next book is about animal communication. In keeping with our self-sufficiency model, Brett designed my cover. I shy away from ritual or routine so I don’t have a writing process in that sense. I think […]

IndieView with Brynn Taylor, author of (You Broke Me) Open

After that I wrote for them pretty consistently, until I noticed that they also publish books. I believed for a long time that I would eventually write a book, but when I saw how much this particular subject of toxic relationships was helping other people, I knew I had to create (You Broke Me) Open. I had the idea, but a professional designer on the […]

IndieView with Mark Boutros, author of Karl’s Kingdom

I prefer not to listen to music so I can focus, but if I do it’s instrumentals. Write because you love it. Did you get your book cover professionally done or did you do it yourself? I think older readers will enjoy the story and the pains Karl goes through to ultimately learn his lesson. I’d like to breathe clean air one day. I wake […]

IndieView with Momchil Yoskov, author of The Immortal Trinity: Inheritance

The idea of owning all of the rights to my own creations without clashing with a publisher’s interests and without them ripping me off of my profits. Now Ronnie has a new purpose in life. How will he cope with it? Do you edit as you go or wait until you’ve finished? Some metal material for my own band, whenever it becomes a reality, the […]

IndieView with Karen Botha, author of Naked Truths

What made you decide to go Indie, whether self-publishing or with an indie publisher? Anyone who needs a bit of escapism from everyday life, more specifically females 18 – 45. Do you edit as you go or wait until you’ve finished? Ignoring warnings from her best friend and ex murder detective, Paula, Lucy ploughs head on into a tumultuous romance with Giles. What came easily? […]

IndieView with E.Y. Laster, author of Of Captivity & Kings

It’s probably a bad habit, but I don’t find it distracting. No, I don’t listen to music while I write. I loved learning the history behind things, partly because my Mom and Dad told me so many stories as a kid and were endless sources of history. I wrote a book I would love to read! Once I decided their personality and can see them […]

IndieView with Paul A. Trinetti, author of The Complete Vexton Trilogy

End of Interview: For more from Paul visit his website, follow him on Twitter, or like his Facebook page. The three books were written in 5 years. What came easily? Somewhere in the middle. About You Where did you grow up? No, I write in silence. Do you listen to music while you write? As the outlines link together, the entire story begins to fall […]

Reviewer IndieView with Jessica of Forward Scribes

I personally love self-published authors and I’ll review them any chance I get. Not much, but it does and I have to mention it. We’re seeing lots of statistics that say reading as a pastime is dying – do you think that’s the case? Scare the mess out of me. You’ll find good books and you’ll find bad ones. Reviewers, especially myself, are always looking […]

IndieView with Aurora Thornton, author of Wildflowers, Part I: Allaha of the Mountain

(It was also named after him.) Sometimes characters don’t react on paper the way I thought they would in my head – my hands will just refuse to write what I had planned because it feels wrong, and I end up changing the story to better suit the character’s reaction. Hibu’s curiosity is something we share, and Tamara’s empathy is another connection. It was right […]

Reviewer IndieView with Cat Ellington

Where the rating system is concerned, greatness is in the eye of the reader. I’ve read such ones and know this to be a fact. Huge mistakes. Do you have any ideas or comments on how the industry can ‘filter’ good from bad, aside from reviews? The process of completing such a book will take me that much longer, but I wouldn’t abandon it altogether. […]

IndieView with Danica Davidson, author of Escape from the Overworld

End of Interview: For more from Danica visit her website or follow her on Twitter. About Publishing Did you submit your work to Agents? As Stevie and Maison’s worlds become more combined, their adventure becomes intense and even more frightening than they could have ever imagined. If I edit while I’m writing, I might lose the flow and get distracted. Was it a particular event […]

IndieView with Eva Vernae, author of If Her Walls Could Talk

I felt like there were opportunities to make something happen in the book whereas it didn’t happen in real life or vice versa. No, there are no particular authors that have influenced how I write. If yes, what gets the fingers tapping? If Her Walls Could Talk is a fictitious biography/novel that tells a story about a young girl named Lailah Turner. Winging it scares […]

IndieView with Rosemary Hayward, author of Margaret Leaving

Not that the book is erudite or difficult, but I think you need to read all of it, and be prepared work at it, before you can appreciate it. About Writing Do you have a writing process? If so can you please describe it? Have a website and a Facebook presence. After the first draft is written I write an outline, in order to keep […]

It was shocking when the very next day they were getting purchased! In the meantime she teams up with a doctor named Malek whose mission in life is to wipe out the vampires.

Reviewer IndieView with Desert Rose of Desert Rose Reviews

It is all about networking, though. Unsure of what books to start with, I found Goodreads, and made a to-be-read list from some groups I joined. It’s like tripping, for the mind. No matter how long the book is, if the plot doesn’t pull me in, it takes me longer to finish it. You have to smooth that road out, before you ask people to […]
