On October 25, 2019 I finally figured out keywords. (Thank you Dave Chesson and Publisher Rocket at Kindlepreneur!) I had purchased Publisher Rocket months earlier, but had not had time to learn how to use it or see what the information could do for me. That purchase had led me to Awesome Gang where I started doing some book promotion. (They are like super awesome, literally.) But October 25 was the day it all changed, and being an Indie Author became real. I sold books to people who were not my family and friends. I started earning royalties on Oct 26. To all of you who set that in motion, Thank you!
I will get better at the whole craft of Indie Writing. I still am not sure about the twitter hashtags. And Instagram makes my head hurt a bit. But I am going to try it.
Welcome to Ophelia Kee Speaks. This is a blog chronicling my independent author walk. The journey into the dream has been a life-changing experience as I try to become a full-time writer and leave the professional world behind me. In my blog each day, you will find information on the ‘behind the scenes’ for writing contemporary adult fantasy fiction and paranormal romance stories set in the dream. I will speak on topics detailing with my writing, publishing, promotion, and marketing as well as social media dealing with my books, book trailers, book launches, book art, music, audio, and video, as well as shameless self-promotion. I am not an expert and am not claiming to be one. I am simply one writer offering a glimpse of my struggle to become a successful independent author. Thank you for considering my words.
