Aren’t most of us multitaskers juggling various aspects of life? A rhetorical question, for sure!
Seems to me, Indie authors do an awful lot of juggling pertaining to the craft of writing itself. Whether we undertake every component ourselves, or solicit others to do it for us, the list includes, but is in no way limited to: story development, editing, cover design, production/formatting, distribution, and marketing. The beat goes on.
Setting all of this aside, I’m one of many Indies who aspires to purchasing and reviewing books written by fellow self-published authors as a show of support. Herein lies, my admission for biting off more than I can chew:
Sitting on my Kindle, waiting to be opened, are 58 books! Can’t say I’ll read every one of them due to time constraints, but wish I could. Most certainly, I’ll bite off even more than I can chew by purchasing more books that strike my fancy.
There’s no rhyme or reason for my sequence in reading those in waiting, preferring to follow my heart’s dictates. A discerning reader with high standards, most of the books I’ve read have merited 4-5 stars, indicating that Indies are a force to reckon with.
That said, I received an email notification this week pertaining to my nonfiction book, meriting its second award in a 2-wk. period:
We had a staggering 1,023 entries in the 2018 TopShelf Indie Book Awards, and your book 100 Wild Mushrooms: Memoirs of the ‘60s has been selected as a Finalist in the category of Memoirs (Other)!
