Reviewer IndieView with Marie Blanchet of Marie Does Book Reviews

That was nice. When an author, either because I already know them, or through their writing, proves to me that I have nothing to worry about, and that they have my back, then I can get fully engaged, and that’s when the experience of reading their book becomes magical. Generally, I find that my tolerance deeply depends on the situation. I tend to read books […]

IndieView with A.K. Smith, author of A Deep Thing

IndieView with Jason Pomerance, author of Women Like Us

Are your characters entirely fictitious or have you borrowed from real world people you know? I know a lot of people in and around publishing who were willing to read and give notes. I think she’s just brilliant in the way she takes real world, everyday characters and makes them so much larger than life. It’s one of my goals in life to be the […]

Reviewer IndieView with Dawn West of Up ‘Til Dawn Book Blog

I’m pretty forgiving for typos in self-published books. About Publishing What do you think of the oft-quoted comment that the “slush-pile has moved online”? Just keep writing and developing your craft. Hence the name of my blog. What advice could you give to authors looking to get their books reviewed? I can easily overlook a moderate number of typos. Some still snub their noses at […]

IndieView with Emily Page, author of Fractured Memories

It took me about 2 months to complete the first manuscript. I am targeting caregiver support groups first as well as trying to get reviews by indie book reviewers. I would have been afraid to put one long, sad memoir out there, and it wouldn’t have been a good way to honor my dad. I’m a little ridiculous and there’s a fair amount of humor […]

IndieView with Brian Fitzpatrick, author of Mechcraft

I am grateful to have a talented graphic artist son who designed the cover for me. Do you have a marketing plan for the book or are you just winging it?

IndieView with Ralph Webster, author of A Smile in One Eye: a Tear in the Other

It is a memoir – not a novel or a series. They spread the word. The downside, my wife would suggest, is that sometimes private moments get widely shared. This seems to be an effective approach. This is the chilling account of one family as they flee for their lives. I wrote software, not books. Do you listen to music while you write? I can […]

IndieView with Jay Nachlis, author of Never Trust a Grown Man with a Ponytail

Generally speaking, it took about one year. The self-publishing market has made it so accessible for anyone that wants to be heard.
