Kate in The Gazette: Indie Author Day, 10/13
Check it out, I’m in The Gazette! Again, I mean, because I worked for The G for years, but I’m thrilled they were able to preview my upcoming visit to Colorado Springs this weekend. An excerpt:
Self-publishing was not the path (Jonuska) imagined as a young writer, but it turned out to make the most sense, though she’s not opposed to trying traditional publishing for her second book. Doing it on her own, though, allowed her to keep creative control over a story she thought might be challenging for an agent and regular publishing house, and it was faster than the average two-year wait to get a book out via the old-fashioned method.
“I wanted to prove that quality can be done in the self-published market,” she said. “If a book is good, it doesn’t matter what the imprint is on the spine. In the end, the writer’s job is to create a story that sells itself.”
Or if you’re in the Colorado Springs area and you’re curious about indie publishing, please come out to Indie Author Day tomorrow.
