Bio: JD Estrada is a Puerto Rican indie author who recently moved to the lovely state of Georgia. As a kid, he dreamed of being an inventor, he just never knew he would be just that and that he would do so using words. Fascinated by life and committed to capturing as many stories as possible, the main thing for Estrada is to push himself as a writer and create unique word adventures on his writer journey to connect with humans whilst exploring humanity and all its nuances.

Favorite thing about being a writer: All the people I’ve connected with around the world. It’s lovely to know I’m read in countries like Pakistan, India, Belarus, and so many others and that so many people want to share their stories as well as read mine.

Biggest challenge as an indie author: Having people give me a chance to be read, getting reviews, and sales are the three biggest challenges, although I think reviews is one of the biggest ones. I don’t pay for reviews or ads so I depend on people talking about me and my work. It’s lovely because it means that every time someone leaves a review, it’s because they really wanted to, but it’s still a big challenge.

Favorite book: The Sandman series by Neil Gaiman or the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling. Very close would also be Dune by Frank Herbert.

  1. So nice to see you here, JD! 🙂 Always fun to hear more about wonderful authors. I see we have Harry Potter in common as a favorite book (series). I love your answer abut being an author – reaching people all over the world. That really is awesome. Cheers!

    1. Harry and me go wayy back. Good guy that there Harry lol. But yeah, probably one of the main series that got me back into reading heavily. As for reaching people around the world, it’s been quite the blessing and an intense ride 🙂 cheers

    1. Hi, Sheila! Nice to meet you too and I wanted to do something different, so the daydreams are perfect because there are really no rules and you can have as much fun as the imagination allows. Thanks for the lovely well wishes and the same to you 😉
