Ali Parker talks about being an indie author andloving it!
I think from a young age I’ve always been independent, always looking for a way toforge a new path and climb a steep hill and do it mainly on my own. I think like mostIndies, I started by trying the traditional route and after loads of rejection, it was justeasier to forget it. A few friends of mine are making it big in the indie world and havereluctantly pulled me into it as well. I will tell you that it’s the best decision I’ve evermade.
I’m not a superstar, but a story teller – which is all I ever wanted to be. I set myschedule, write what I want, love on you guys by giving away whatever the hell I wantto and life FEELS right/good.
Let me tell you why else I love being Indie.
1. No one will ever love my book as much as me. It’s my creation and having thefreedom to choose what it looks like and where the plot goes is all mine to decide. Idon’t have someone standing over my shoulder making it “better” by their definition of“better.”
2. I can spend as little or as much time, energy and money as I want. Obviously themore I put into it, the more I’m going to get out of it, but that’s with anything in life. Thecool part is that if I’m a good editor or if I can design my own cover, then those arecosts to be saved and skills to be used.
3. I belong. In a world of independent authors I find myself fitting in just perfectly.We all work hard and dream big and the encouragement is beyond belief. I don’t haveto write a certain genre or stick to a certain structure in the plot. I simply write, promoteand support and honestly feel great about myself at the end of the day.
Being an Indie author, to me, doesn’t really have anything to do with beingIndependent though. It’s a statement that says I’m capable of making every step alongthis book writing/producing platform to take a dream from start to finish. The truth ofwhat Indie authors are doing is showing the world that there still exists hope. Hope todream big and work hard to make that dream a reality.
That’s why I love being Indie!
