Indie Author Spotlight - K.C. O'Neill

Indie Author Spotlight - K.C. O'Neill

'm a big fan of anyone who takes charge of their own dreams and makes them into a reality. And no one does that better than the indie author. I'm proud to be a part of this community, because the whole industry is filled with helpful, supportive, brilliant people who are out to accomplish their dreams, no matter what. They're self aware, generous, responsive, innovative thinkers who take responsibility for their own path in life. What's not to love? 

This week I'm putting a spotlight on one indie author in particular, my new friend K.C. O'Neill. She's recently released her book, "Just Parker," now available on Amazon. Put it on your Kindle and give it a read. But before that, get an inside peek into its development and promotion, and the author behind it.

Development Diary: Evergreen

Development Diary: Evergreen

In early November I had a dream that led to an idea, which eventually led to me starting a new book. This was something completely outside of either Citadel or Sawyer Jackson—a new, independent story that could stand on its own or become a series in its own right. I titled the story “Evergreen.”

Nick Thacker was so right (advice for focusing on the important)

Nick Thacker was so right (advice for focusing on the important)

If it's important, it gets done. But how do you decide what's important? Planning and scheduling have traditionally driven me into anxiety-fueled hysterics, but it doesn't have to be that way. Scheduling things is a way to prioritize what you need to accomplish, and help you focus on getting the important stuff done. And there's a tool that might help with that.

Interview with Violette Meier

Interview with Violette Meier

I had a chance to chat and exchange interviews with author, artist, and poet Violette Meier. 

I love doing interviews like this (ever seen my "five questions" interviews? I'll dig those out and dust them off soon). The indie author community is already strong and growing stronger, and I feel honored and privileged to be a part of it! But enough about me, let's talk about Violette Meier —

The "one sure trick" to marketing for indie authors

The "one sure trick" to marketing for indie authors

Marketing is hard. Also, marketing is easy.

And if that makes your head hurt, it's worse knowing how absolutely true both those statements are. I'm learning, as I dig deeper into marketing my own books, that the whole system is kind of conflicted and confused from within.

Writing day! Citadel: CoL in progress

Writing day! Citadel: CoL in progress

Just wanted to drop a quick note. I know I've slacked off on blog posts this week, but it's all in the name of a worthy cause! Today I am spending the entire day working on Citadel: Children of Light!

You can track my progress on the Home page. Throughout the day I'll update with the latest word count, and you can watch that little meter fill up to your heart's content!

I'm incredibly grateful to you for being patient and supportive. And I hope this will be enough to get you excited about the book. It's a hell of a story, and I really cannot wait for your to read it!

Soon, my pretties. Soon.
