**UPDATED SECOND EDITION** This book is for every author who's thinking about indie publishing, or has already taken the leap, and wonders why no one told them about the sharks, the life-sucking social media quicksand, or the best way to avoid sales-checking, yellow-spotted fever. This is a guide for the heart as much as the head. And because I promised myself that I wouldn't write a book about how I made a gazillion dollars publishing ebooks, I would write about the fear: owning it, overcoming it, facing it. From a person who didn't pursue a creative life for a long time, and then discovered creativity can set you free. Note: gazillion is a technical term, which in this case means something less than a million and more than the average income in my state. The Guide is intended to take a first-time-publishing author from those first tentative steps, through the leap, and into the great adventure of indie publishing. Already-published authors who want to jump-start lagging sales or launch a new series will also benefit from nuts-and-bolts marketing advice as well as inspiration for the long-haul of their publishing journey. Susan Kaye Quinn is the author of the Singularity Series, the Mindjack Trilogy and the Debt Collector serial (as well as other speculative fiction works) and has been indie publishing since 2011. She's not an indie rockstar or a breakout success: she's one of thousands of solidly midlist indie authors making a living with their works. This book is based on her experience in self-publishing fiction-the First Edition was published in 2013, the Second Edition in 2015, updated to account for changes in the industry. It's a guide to help her fellow writer-friends take their own leaps into the wild (and wonderful) world of indie publishing... and not only survive, but thrive. Coming Soon: For Love or Money: Crafting An Indie Author Career The Indie Author Survival Guide is designed to take a first-time-publishing author through the publication of their
