Dear Indie Authors,
I can still remember the first Indie book that I bought. It was Tracey Ward's Writing on the Wall. After holding out for years, I had finally given in and put the Kindle app on my phone to see what the fuss was about. Late at night, I was scrolling through pages of books and hoping that some would leap out to me to help me fight off insomnia. Whenever I saw Writing on the Wall, I second guessed it because zombies. I've never been a fan. But less than a day later, Tracey Ward had sold me on zombies and Indie authors. I was hooked.
All of you are an immense inspiration. Far too many people think that traditional publishing is the only viable and legit way to be an author. How wrong they are. Every single one of you who give the middle finger to common perceptions and do it your own way are what makes me happy to be a reader and a book blogger.
So, thank you. Thank you for chasing your dreams. Thank you for giving me so many diverse worlds to escape to. Thank you for never giving up. Thank you for giving me characters that go against the norms and seem like real people. Thank you for giving me characters that feel like lifelong friends. Thank you for being not only an author but a friend. Thank you for sacrificing your own time to write these books. Please, don't ever stop.
Kittens and hugs,
