The Heart ❤️ of an Indie



⁣⁣I love being an indie author. ⁣⁣⁣
Every story I write, every tale I tell, I have free rein as to how I want to tell my story—an utter and complete freedom of creating a book from a germ of an idea to the finishing touches. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
I love being able to collaborate with amazing illustrators, who are just as passionate about telling a story with their images.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Every story, every book that I write and design is made with so much LOVE 💗 and passion, persistence and determination, and most of all, courage.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
All indie authors know we need an armor of courage every single day, for the marketplace is huge, and the book world is overflowing with books. Many of these books are supported by big marketing machines—the likes of which a true indie author/self-publisher will struggle to replicate. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
But we’ve got brave hearts 💕 and an overflowing passion for telling stories⁣.⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
We wear so many hats—not just that of a writer. Many of us assume the roles of a copy editor, graphic designer, publicist, literary agent, editor, publisher, marketer, storyteller, blogger, social media manager… you name it. Some even illustrate their own books—I haven’t gone down this road…yet. ⁣
⁣⁣⁣
We do it all! And we do it with so much love and passion…we make it look EASY even though it’s not. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
So I salute all the indie authors/self-publishers out there who are making their dreams come true! ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
You are amazing and I love 💕 being part of such a supportive indie author community in this space. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
We root for each other, we encourage each other, we give praise where it’s due. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
I suppose all I really wanted to say is… this book I Love You Through Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall was made by an indie 💗.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Can you feel the love 💗 radiating from this book? ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
If there is room for more books on your shelf, try some books written by indie authors. There are so many amazing indie books out there waiting to be discovered! ⁣⁣⁣
