Author name: Joss Sheldon
Genre: Literary Fiction
Bio: Joss Sheldon is a scruffy nomad, unshaven layabout, and good for nothing hobo. Born in 1982, he was brought up in one of the anonymous suburbs which wrap themselves around London’s beating heart. And then he escaped!
Four years down the road, Sheldon now has three novels to his name, including an epic-poem and a dystopian masterpiece. Buzzfeed called his latest release, The Little Voice, “A remarkable feat”. The Canary called it “Top Notch”. His books are just asking to be read…
Favorite thing about being a writer: Writing allows me to be my own boss; it gives me the freedom to be who I want to be. To be me. And to do what I want to do.
Biggest challenge as an indie author: Selling books, without receiving any coverage in the mainstream press, or any exposure in high street bookshops, is the biggest challenge for me. People who read my books absolutely love them, but that’s not always enough.
Pigeon-holing my books is also difficult. My books are unique, they’re avant-garde, so they can’t really be marketed to fans of one particular genre. That certainly puts me at a disadvantage.
Favorite book: Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie
