About Monique L Miller

I decided to go beyond writing for one specific genre and delve into all that I'm able. Why pigeon-hole yourself if you don't have to?

I've wanted to be a writer since the age of 10 and I decided to publish my short stories, novellas, and full length novels on Smashwords and Amazon. Hope you enjoy.

Upcoming titles include: (Novels) Loving Alabama and Diamonds & Pearls; (Novella) Mirror Images; (short stories) Notes in Winter, Kisses in Winter, Beauty in Winter, Stars in Winter, and Hearts in Winter as a part of the Winter Love collection, as well as the short stories Maybe Tomorrow and Shimmer; and (Poetry) By the Fire.

A must read for indie authors/self publishers (who are failed)

I love books written by failed people. They are more realistic. Books of/about winners are too good to be read. Hard work may not give success. That is the reality.

I think more failed people should write their own stories. It may comfort others and urge them to open their mouth and share their story.

After all, the losers are the majority in our world.

Review by: Time Travel Press on Oct. 11, 2014 :
This is an amazingly well written book describing the author’s experience with indie self-publishing. Even if I don’t agree with everything she says, her book contains a lot of good advice for anyone starting out on the path of independent self-publishing and many interesting insights in the whole process. One warning though: Once you start reading this book, it is very hard to set down. So do yourself a favor and start reading when you have plenty of time to go through the entire book in one sitting, and then some extra time to digest it all.

Reading this book and learning from the author’s early mistakes can save you a lot of headache because you will learn what pitfalls to avoid.

Thank you for sharing your experiences. I am sure it will help some of us avoid the pitfalls you describe. I am writing a series of novels that I probably will post on Smashwords and was encouraged because I seem to be doing some things right: Googling free advice from how to write websites, doing an intense review of English grammar in preparation for self-editing, and planning to publish the entire series at one time rather than one book at a time. You have given me much to think about. Thank you again.

I don't necessarily agree with everything you've written here, but you sure can write. Sharp and concise.
