Be an Indie Writer!

E-books are overtaking or at least sharing the world with printed media!

Writers gain freedom from abusive and dictatorial traditional publishers, appear on world markets and earn fair royalties.

Smashwords is an incredibly successful E-book site that has over 370,000 books and over 110,000 authors. You can set your own price (e.g. $3.99 or $5.99) and select a very inexpensive designer or coder from their website. Mark Coker, the founder from Los Gatos, offers free books on E-book marketing and E-book formating. Hope comes from Smashwords!
