Indie Author Bumper Stickers

Some might think it strange, but Stephanie (Book Love Blog) and I got to tweeting about just that. It's hard to find love, as an indie author, and we were trying to come up with ways to spread the word. Just because an author is self-published, does not mean they are less worthy of readers.

More than twenty years after the dream burrowed its way into my head, it still has not come to pass.

I spent many wasted attempts working on that novel. Each attempt had many hours of planning and plotting behind it. I would write up a concept for the book, put together an outline, build character descriptions and backgrounds.
