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 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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
