Author name: Rachael Ritchey
Genre: YA Historical Fantasy
Books: The Beauty Thief, Captive Hope
Bio: Rachael Ritchey is an indie author with a penchant for helping other writers be the best they can be. She is a mom to four, and they are her inspiration for writing clean YA fiction that anyone can enjoy. Her current series is historical magical realism with themes of hope, courage, redemption, and love. When she’s not writing she’s spending time with her family and friends, dreaming up new worlds, finding new ways to encourage and help other writers, reading, or walking her dog. Rachael lives in beautiful Eastern Washington where outdoor adventure is around every corner.
Favorite thing about being a writer: Being able to take the stories from my imagination and share them.
Biggest challenge as an indie author: Overcoming preconceived notions that indie writing lacks quality compared to traditional. It’s difficult because until you’ve branded yourself well and gained a solid readership, people are not always willing to give you a chance.
Favorite book: The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan

SO cool! Thanks to Book Club Mom for this spot on her blog! ❤
I love it that she writes good, clean YA fiction. Young people need more of that.
Thanks, Kim! Good fiction that I don’t have to wonder about having my kids read is so important to me. Have a great weekend!
Thanks for giving this indy writer some more publicity! Good authors are always a welcome discovery.
Thank you, Ann! 🙂 I really appreciate you saying that and taking notice.
Great feature, great lady. 😊 This is so tough: “preconceived notions that indie writing lacks quality compared to traditional.” That has to be less prevalent now, no? There are so many quality indie authors out there.
P. S. LOVE your new cover for Beauty Thief. 💖
🙂 Thank you, Sarah! I’m do happy with how the new covers turned out. I hope its becoming less prevalent, but with the ease of publishing capabilities, there are thousands of books added daily that never see the desk of an editor or sometimes even have mute than one draft put through the works. There is still the perpetuation of the idea that indie < traditional when it comes to quality and so I'm working hard to dispel that image, beacause I know you're right! There are soooo many fantastic indie authors out there. 🙂
Phooey on autocorrect and typo madness! Haha Even comments could use editing. Haha
