INDIESTRUCTIBLE is here!

HEY! Guess what! I am in a book, and so are 28 other people who have

(A) INTERESTING things to say about stuff you want to know interesting things about.
(B) Some experience in writing and publishing, INDIE STYLE, and
(C) SUPERPOWERS.

Probably should've put that last part first, although in the interest of honesty/compliance with THE LAW, I should also note that nobody who contributed to the book I'm talking about has superpowers.*

*So far as YOU know.  Secret identities and all.

The book is INDIESTRUCTIBLE, and for $0.99, you can buy a book that contains all the wit and wisdom and craft-building inspiration of an entire set of indie authors.  Not just me, but greats like Alex Cavanaugh and Jessica Bell and P.T. Dilloway and more!

If you are a writer, if you KNOW a writer, if you READ STUFF, you will want to read this book.  AND, 100% of the profits go to charity.

Here's more, from Jessica Bell, who put this project together:



The day I realized I’d been obsessing over my sales figures way too much was the day I closed my eyes and tried to think about the real reason I am an indie author.

Is my primary goal to make money? No. So why do I keep obsessing over my sales stats? I realized it’s because more sales means more people reading my work. What I really really want is to be read. I want to share the one thing in this world I would cut my fingers off for. I know. If I didn’t have any fingers, I wouldn’t be able to physically write, but you know what I mean.

My passion for writing comes with a perpetual replacement button, attached to my side seam, just in case it becomes unraveled, and falls off, after a day gallivanting through the publishing jungle. It can be tough in there, but in the end, being an indie author is OH SO WORTH IT.

This made me wonder …  what’s everybody else’s story?
Then Indiestructible was born.

Need motivation and inspiration to self-publish, or sign that contract with an interested small press? Have you done all the research you can, but still feel ambivalent about the idea? Indiestructible: Inspiring Stories from the Publishing Jungle brings you the experiences of 29 indie authors—their passions, their insights, their successes—to help you make the leap into indie publishing.

This is not a how-to guide. This is the best of the indie tradition of experienced authors paying forward what they’ve learned, giving you information to help you on your journey. The personal essays in this book will leave you itching to get your work into the hands of readers and experience, first-hand, all the rewards indie publishing has to offer.

Not only is this anthology packed full of interesting, unique, and genuinely helpful information, and totally worth the 99c (only 99c!!!), 100% of proceeds will be donated to BUILDON.org, a movement which breaks the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations through service and education.

Pretty amazing, huh?

THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!

So this is an amazing project that I'm glad to have been a part of.  I have read almost all of the essays in there -- I'm working my way through -- and the fact is, it's a great book for anyone who likes writing.  You'll see that you're not alone, you'll get ideas on how and when to write and how and where to sell your writing, and whether you should care about selling your writing at all, as Jessica notes.

Get the book today -- and watch Jessica's blog for details about a giveaway for people who buy the book!
