Indie Author Weekly: podcast episode bonuses & free chapters of the books

Get your free backstage pass

Have you ever wondered what life is like as an author?

Are you curious about what goes on behind the scenes to write and publish books?

You are in for a treat!

Indie Author Weekly shares sneak peeks of my life as an indie author (of both fiction and non-fiction). New episodes are released every Tuesday.

This started out as a cross between a "secret" podcast and a weekly newsletter, and the first 12 episodes were released exclusively here before the podcast was made available to the public on other podcast platforms.

However, this is the place to be if you want extra bonuses and goodies, free sample chapters of my books, and to join my author email list!

This podcast is for YOU if you are a...

  • New or aspiring author, wanting to learn more about self-publishing and to get tips/tools for writing and editing your own work
  • Curious bookworm, interested in seeing a peek behind the curtain of the author life!

Each episode includes all the behind-the-scenes details and complete transparency of the struggles and wins that take place with writing and self-publishing books.

Curious what you'll get?

Current and future episodes include...

  • Background details & inspiration to my romance novels
  • Book writing & marketing experiments
  • Writing mindset
  • Indie author logistics
  • Details about my plots, characters, settings, etc

Here are a few previous episode topics to give you a taste of what to expect...

  • Benefits of self-publishing for new authors
  • How to improve confidence & deal with perfectionism
  • My process for outlining & writing a new book (steal my methods!)
  • How to stay disciplined to write & publish books
  • The writing, re-writing & editing process of my first full-length novel
  • Deciding whether to use a pen name, plus the “awkwardness” of writing romance
  • How many hours goes into writing & publishing a book?
  • Real-life book sales stats & marketing experiments

Each episode is accompanied by a written transcript, so if you prefer to read than listen (or if you are deaf or hard of hearing), then the Indie Author Weekly podcast is accessible for you too.

PLUS, in addition to the weekly episodes, you’ll also get access to sample chapters from my books. Score!

...And there are also some fun bonuses, such as a Daily Word Count spreadsheet and a Book Review Prompts cheatsheet. More bonuses will be added in conjunction with future episodes!
