Achieving a high level of success as an indie author is tough gig...like really tough. Besides the actual challenge of writing a book, you have to navigate all the countless other tasks, including editing, proofreading, cover design, book launch, social media, website and on and on and on. Even if you do everything right there’s still no guarantee of success (and certainly not much profit to speak of). For the average indie author, selling anything more than a few hundred books is considered very good. Only a very small percentage ever sell more than 1,000 books.
Which is why the amazing few who beat the odds and actually make it to the big time should be acknowledged, celebrated and studied by the rest of us. With that in mind, we’ll be presenting some of the hottest and most talented indie authors in the business. But, since there are so many amazing writers these days, there’s no way we can cover all of them in a single post so we’re breaking things down by genre (sometimes even by subgenre). We’re starting things off with suspense/thrillers, but watch this space for more awesome indie authors coming soon.
