Award Winning Best Selling Florida Author Yvonne Mason

My Books, writing tips and reviews

Independent Authors

For those of you who don’t know us. We are those authors who are not published by a “traditional” publishing house. The excuses and reasons vary. The main reason we are not published by them is simple. We like maintaining control of our work. We worked hard to give it birth and we don’t want some stranger taking it over.
Most of us have been rejected or ignored by some many houses that we could wallpaper our house with the letters. However, we have decided we can control our destiny.
We work hard to make sure our work is out there. To make sure you the reader have an opportunity to read us. We support each other, encourage each other and promote each other. We write because we love to write. We enjoy the characters as they live in your heads.
We use the internet as our friend. Most of us are not in box stores, we sell all of our works online. We have been scoffed, laughed at turned down and rejected. But we are still here. We made networking our friend way before the traditional authors even knew what we were doing.
We are a force – we are the present and the future. We come from all walks of life. But we are artists.
If you as a reader have not yet tried one of our books, you should. It will open doors for you that you never knew were out there. The older traditional authors are dying off. Which is sad, and there are no new ones out there. Which is even sadder. However, we are and we are not leaving. We are the wave of the future. We know how to get our work out there in all of the arenas. We are in book form and electronic form we are getting on audio. We are coming.
Check us out, Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc- brings you the dark side, Martha Cheaves, brings you great food, Fran Lewis brings you lifes lessons, Bette Crosby inspiration, Tim Ahrens fantasy, Ann B Keller fantasy and thrillers. This is just a few of those who are out there beside myself who have great works and are easy to find.
The beauty of us as indies is we reach out to our readers, we love hearing from them. We answer their emails, we listen, and we respond. We don’t have PR people who send out form letters or emails. Most of us have online bookstores so when you want a signed copy of our book you can order one. We believe in our readers and we love our readers.
So come on join the fun, take that step and read a book by an indie author. You won’t regret it!
