Motivation Monday -- Indie Author
Today's author impressed me because she is probably one of the few to have a very well-known literary agent and traditional publishing offers, but she decided to indie publish because she wanted to publish at her own pace.
I can relate to that! When I sold the rights to my first book, I had some really great moment going and blew all of that with my book deal. Taking your book off the market for nearly a year can hurt---big time! Especially if it's your first book and you have no backlist.
On top of that, she really seems to love to write. I love a writer who really loves writing. Anyway, she published a paranormal series--Celestra--that not only got her on the big lists (NY Times, USA Today), but she also scored a Hollywood deal, getting her books optioned by 20th Century Fox for a TV series.
Her name is Addison Moore. Check her out here...
