Why Go Indie?: 6 Reasons for Self-Publishing (TBC Writer’s Toolkit Book 1)

To get published as an author is every writer’s dream. Untill a decade back this dream was somewhat far flung with limited opportunities with traditional publishers. Moreover, the waiting time and process involved took a lot of enthusiasm out of these writer’s. Or that ‘s what I have read time and again. But not any more.  With the advent of ebooks and online reading platforms, a lot of authors have found bliss on the indie path.

They can work out their way on their own, with the help of some technical help and be ready to reach out to the mass of readers.

Another of those heavy advise laden books about what to feed, what not to feed your kids. Continue Reading
