It jingles my spurs to now be able to offer signed eBooks through Authorgraph! If you have a e-version of In the Reins I'd be very happy to sign it for you. Here's the great part! There's no need to repurchase in order to get it signed. Authorgraph makes it possible for me to sign e-books for readers! Here's how it works ...
In this eleventh Equestrian Author Spotlight, my spurs are really jingling because I talk with Jan Ruth. She is the author of the Midnight Sky Series. I am a HUGE fan of her horse book series for adults! Of course, Jan and I discuss the best topics on earth ... writing, books and horses! In the interview, you'll find out what inspired her equestrian fiction series, learn where the inspiration for her beautiful book cover designs come from, and hear why she left traditional publishing to return to the indie world last year (psst ... she prefers creative freedom over any perceived prestige!) What a spur jingling way to honor your creativity, Jan!
Happy Reading, Everyone!
McKennon and Devon's story continues. Time to break out the bubbly! I'm proud to share with readers that the sequel to In the Reins is finished. The manuscript to the second book in the In the Reins series is complete. Here's what comes next ...
I'm celebrating the first ten authors featured in my Equestrian Author Spotlight series with a recap post! Thank you to all the authors who have given me the gift of their time. It makes my spurs jingle when authors unite. I’ve learned so much from other authors and appreciate how unique each of our writing journeys is. I think it is so important to support each other and share knowledge among us. We are stronger working together to expose this “niche” genre of ours. Here’s to horse books!
Here's a recap of the first TEN interviews in case you missed one. Happy reading!
In recent years, the self-publishing industry has exploded and new tools for self-publishing have removed barriers for authors who prefer to go it alone, I am one of them. Equestrian fiction authors have legendarily been told that their books (with an equine twist) are too niche. I don't agree.
My goal was to write a story with an honest depiction of the human-horse bond while at the same time giving readers the experience of falling in love with the characters of my book. After some extensive research, I decided to self-publish my first novel and skip the conversation about my book being too specialized to market.
In this post, I share a list of books that have been priceless to me as I started out on my journey as a self-published author. I continue to reference them as I ready to release the sequel to In the Reins. I believe one must GIVE TO GROW so I hope this list of spur jingling books on self-publishing will inspire and help other self-published authors navigate the awesome (and sometimes choppy) waters of self-publishing.
