S.D. Skye's Hell or High Water 365-Day Blogathon Day 122 -- Motivation Monday


I'm on a deadline so I've got to keep this short and sweet, but Rebecca's story is a great one.  Click both links in this article for additional inspiration and insights on publishing!

She's a NY Times Bestselling indie author and was the first indie author to win the International Thriller Writers' Award, no small feat. 

She like many of us, wrote books that were turned down by publishers and she self published. After the ITW award, her career took off. 

She's recently co-written a novel with James Rollins. How cool is that? 

She talks about the secret sauce to her success in this article on Selfpublishingadvice.com. 

"I have to credit having an insane work ethic, persistence, and a lot of good luck. Writing is a tough gig—hours alone in a room listening to the voices in your head without any idea of whether what you’re writing will ever make any sense to anyone else. And that’s just the first day. After that, it’s all about how to keep going. Write pages. Write more pages. Pile them up, edit them, and share them with the world. If you’re lucky, sometimes those pages will connect with readers. It’s no secret, just hard work." 

Listen to more about her incredible research process and books in the video below.
