  1. Thanks so much for this post featuring Indie Authors. I like how you have a different author for different genres. Would you mind if I copied your idea for cookbooks?

  2. You are SO good at showcasing indie authors, who usually don’t have the deep pockets and wider influence of traditionally published authors. Thanks, Barbara!

    1. Hi Marian – thank you! Social media and blogging, though overwhelming and time consuming, is a great way to get the word out about authors and books. It’s hard to be a writer AND promote your work. I enjoy doing these interviews and am glad to have so many interested authors!

  3. What a great list, Barbara, and I loved doing the interview with you. Thanks for including me, and Congratulations to all of these wonderful authors.

  4. Good of you to feature these authors here. It amazes me how many people have written books. I don’t know if more people do now, or I’m more aware of it thanks to posts like these? 🤔
