Press On

Phil 3 14 BW

"I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14).

Someone asked a question in a writer’s group about how each of us decided to become an indie author. Here’s my response.

I had been writing for almost twenty years, but was unpublished. I was bursting with stories to tell that I wanted to publish. When I found out that there was a lot of waiting in traditional publishing, that sometimes it takes years to get books to market, that bookstores are closing, and after all that hard work, the royalties are what? Never mind. I decided that with my own previous experience in running my own business, I can hire professional editors and cover designers, and I can publish my own books. Armed with prayer and research, I went forth. Three years and fifteen published books later, I'm a happy indie. No regrets. 

If you’re not familiar with my books, here are some of my current and upcoming series:
