Independent authors are a rising force within the publishing industry. Having recently joined those ranks, I confess to being very pleasantly surprised how supportive the community of independent authors is. Accordingly, I will be beginning a blog roll on the right side of this page and I will be creating a link at the top for self-publishers to promote their full-length works. I am also making the main page available to independent authors to publish short stories or opinion pieces. I'll make some rules for self-promotion on the main page and I will follow them myself.
