Today, I’m launching a new feature to help all my lovely Indie authors — as part of the launch celebration for Marketing Indieworld–a cutting edge book on Book Marketing written by multi-award winning author. Currently a top 100 book in Amazon.
Indie authors: Answer as many of the following questions as you want. Be sure to call out readers with clear links to your books and what you’re looking for:
- Beta readers
Once you’ve answered all the questions, send them to [email protected] and I’ll get them up on my blog, in my newsletter (almost 1000 subscribers), and in my social networks.
- What’s your favorite thing about writing?
- Describe the place you normally use when you’re writing. What music do you listen to? Anything special in there besides a computer?
- What is your inspiration for writing?
- Tell us a little about a recent project (you may share up to 250 words of your work in progress or recently published novel)
- What’s your writing process like? Where do you get ideas for your plots? Are you a plotter or a pantser? Do you use special software?
- Tell us why you started writing. How long? How many books? What’s your motivation? How long to write a book?
- Do you research your books? Characters? Scenes? Tell us a little about that process.
- How do you deal with writer’s block?
- What tactics work best for you when it comes to marketing books? Have you seen a change in the best marketing strategies over time?
- Do you do all your marketing online or offline? Both? Which is the most successful?
- If you could give advice to someone just starting on their writing journey, what 3 things would you tell them?
Feel free to add questions of your own or find some online inspiration, such as these.

Send answers as a word document (ie. Microsoft Word or Google Doc) to: [email protected]
Please format with the questions in bold and the answers in italics. Please edit for grammar and spelling as I won’t do that for you.
Include a headshot, a book cover, and other images, if you wish.
You must try to be interesting and creative–you want readers to want to read your books. Also, editing is important.
