Special guest Sydney Strand began her novel-writing career under a different name with Penguin Random. After publishing two books and being disillusioned with the process, she decided to go indie to get back her love of writing—just for the fun of it. Now, she’s going back to traditional, but not all the way. She’ll continue to publish some of her work as an indie author.
We talk about all kinds of things in this 45-minute episode! Some of the things that get mentioned are effective advertising strategies, advice for aspiring authors (hint: grow a thick skin!), KDP Select, Goodreads Giveaways, and the Twitter Writing Challenge community, which is how Sydney and I met.
