What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are my inspiration. If it weren't for them, I couldn't be a successful writer. So I love to hear from them and get their feedback and ideas on what they want to read.
What are you working on next?
I just put my seven ebooks onto Smashwords. New items I'm writing include my great-grandmother in law's memoirs, and a stream of consciousness novel.
I am very impressed with Missing Links. I love self-help books and find that they can be a useful supplement to talk therapy, or used alone. Missing Links by Daniel Petra explains what we know instinctively that by trying too hard to change ourselves we can become exhausted and give up. Therefore, “baby steps” can be an effective method of change in the process of giving up bad habits or acquiring new ones. Baby steps require less effort and can seem to promote a seamless transition to a better life.
Many aspects are covered including our creativity, setting priorities, deepening our self-awareness, getting over past hurts, and much more. I think you will love Missing Links if you have ever wondered if you could be happier.
What a great resource for indie authors. I have been self publishing for a couple of years but I learned so many tips while reading Mark's Book Marketing Guide. Make sure to read all of his publishing and marketing advice. Check out my books on Smashwords at https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/MaryBlowers. They are doing better and better--I hope to break 5 figures ($10,000) this year.
Mark Coker's Smashwords Style Guide is stellar! It tells you absolutely everything you'll need to know to successfully publish your book on Smashwords. Then, read his Marketing guides to grow your popularity. Kudos to Mark for helping all "his" authors to succeed.
