Self-publishing success tips from Tara Ames

As an emerging indie author of contemporary military and sports romances, I have enjoyed quite a journey into the world of self-publishing. Since I published my first book The Risk Taker, book 1, Alpha Aviators series back in August 2017, I’ve published a total of five books and two novellas, with three short stories featured in two anthologies and one boxed set. During this time, two of my works received awards, and I became a USA Today Bestselling Author.

And you’re probably wondering how I did it? . . .

Breaking Away from the Crowd

By Courtney Pierce

Today I have the opportunity to expand beyond my regular post as a Genre-ista to guest blog about this crazy writing biz. As I tap away on the draft of my seventh book, Big Sky Talk, I’m pleased to say that the hefty word count in my literary backpack has earned me the “write” to impart some wisdom. It’s a tough business that I now take quite seriously. It didn’t start out that way when I wrote my first book, Stitches.

Are there authors out there reading how to books? Do you say that is not for me? Maybe after reading this blog you might change your mind. Or not.

September 2014 – Don’t Shun How-to Books Because—

Posted on Writers Cheat Sheets by Catherine E Mclean

My pet peeve is the writer who says they don’t read how-to books on writing because: 1) they don’t want to write like someone else or b) they’d rather learn as they go and just write (the frustrating trial-and-error method).

Okay, so there are how-to books that basically say “write like this and you’ll sell a blockbuster.” There are also far more how-to books by authors that spout the rhetoric of bygone fiction philosophies. I should know, I’ve read some 400 how-to books on fiction writing over the years.
