My name is Lakisha Spletzer and in 2010, I joined the ranks of the indie author. I toyed with the idea of creating a blog that was devoted to the various aspects of indie writing and publishing, but I wanted to wait until I gained a little more experience and learned from others that were taking that same journey.
I was inspired by author Joe (JA) Konrath's blog, a "Newbie's Guide To Self-Publishing" and how his take on the indie publishing surge would/will/has an impact on the publishing industry. Another source of wisdom and inspiration came my friend and fellow Indie Author, Elissa Malcohn. I've met others along the way and each had unique stories to tell as well as varying advice.
So I decided, new year, new ideas and time to pay it forward. So I started this blog in an effort to give Indie authors 1) a place to get their works in front of people and 2) accumulate helpful knowledge, tips and advice for the unpublished, newly published, or already published Indie authors.
I’m looking for published indie authors who are willing to do a guest post or interview covering aspects of self-publishing. For instance:
  • Writing Process
  • Obtaining ISBNs
  • Creating a publishing company
  • Editing
  • Website & Blogging
  • Marketing [Blog Tours, Conferences/Conventions), Book trailers, etc.]
  • Social Media/Networking
  • Cover Art
  • Pricing
  • General experiences
  • And more
Post must be between 300 - 1500 words.

If you’re interested, please email me at author (at) kishazworld (dot) com and let me know the topic.
