It illustrates the path the new indie author will likely travel. While this guide is not a step-by-step, holding-your-hand, instruction-packed text book, it takes the reader along the path that leads to creating a book in print or eBook format. It explains what the new author can expect on the way and details the first-hand experiences that lie ahead. It is written in everyday language with a touch of bathos and humor. It avoids the heavy-handed, wearisome textbook approach. A Guide For The Indie Author is a straightforward and concise mini-manual for the fresh, independent author. It describes the process of self-publication from conception, through document creation and book formatting to the distribution of the final product. A light-hearted discussion covers various writing genres, character development, theme creation, writing styles and the inclusion of dialogue. Resources available for the new author are explained, where to look for them and what to do with them after they are found. It is an informative overview of the brave new world of indie publishing that was virtually unknown and impassable a generation ago. We are reminded to enjoy the experience and always make a back-up copy. That, in and of itself, makes sense.
