~ Praise for BEING INDIE ~

"This book demystifies the many aspects of self-publishing and presents them in a no-nonsense approach that I found refreshing. Other books might exist on the subject, but I have yet to read one that offers this level of clarification."

"Every aspiring author should immediately add this to their reading list. I wish I had this years ago when I started; it would have saved me a lot of pain and suffering."
