In 2009, I decided to become an author, unfortunately, I had no idea what kind of journey I was signing up for. As I threw my hat into the race, publishers were closing left and right due to the Great Recession. Also, Amazon had just started challenging the U.S. publishing industry by creating the Kindle e-reader and their Kindle Direct Publishing company. Now in 2018, the publishing industry has changed so much, today, many authors are choosing to go indie and major publishers are being even more selective about what they acquire. So what would I say to an author just starting out today? Well, I gathered some of the best advice I could and decided to publish it all here. Hopefully, you too will pass it on to the next generation of newbie authors who don’t have a clue about how the publishing thing works.
