Indy Writer Resources

So – you have written a book, and you want to get it published?

But with the advent of publish on demand print fulfillment, and digital publishing, there are other games in town – and it is perfectly possible for a committed independent author to turn out a book that is the equal in every way to a traditionally-published product. Here’s some advice from those who have gone and done it … their way.
