In the interests of supporting my fellow independent authors, I’ve been reading a lot of self-published novels. Some have been wonderful, others have been dreadful.
Then there are those in the middle, that are great stories that somehow fall apart in the execution. These are the ones that bother me the most. The authors were on to something that could have been great, but didn’t quite get there. Many people still believe indie authors turn out second-rate work. From much of the reading I’ve done, I have to admit they have a point.
This prompted me to make a little video on what we as independent authors can do to overcome that bad reputation.
