What is Indie Publishing?

I recently added a new page to my blog specifically for authors/writers. To aid in that page, I have decided to write up a couple of posts with some questions readers and authors alike may have. The first question is:

What is Indie Publishing and how is it different from Traditional Publishing?

I have recently been asked questions about how I published my books and if I have any advice on that. This has led me to a decision. I am going to write a blog series on the self-publication process. This series will include:

  • Resources I have used and recommend
  • Resources I have used and do not recommend
  • Marketing ideas
  • How to become an independently published author
  • My publishing journey
  • And probably more

Before I can really do this, I need your help. Do you have any specific questions you would like to have answered about the self-publication process? If so, either comment with your question(s) or email me at faith.blum.author@gmail.com and I will add your questions to my ever growing list.

Thank you and I look forward to sharing with my journey with you.
