Indie Publishing

This page is under construction!

In the summer of 2012 I made the leap: I decided not to go for a traditional publishing deal for my thriller, Huntress Moon. I put it out as an e book instead. I made more money in the first month of release than I'd ever made for a traditional book advance, and Huntress Moon was nominated for a Thriller Award in the ITW's brand new Best E Book Original Novel category.

I've blogged quite a big on my indie publishing experience, and am collecting and linking those posts along with general essays on book marketing and the book business here for easy reference.
