About meAmy Lichtenhan first found a love for writing during her days as a young mother and college student. She filled the journals she carried with short stories and poems used as an emotional outlet for the difficulties and joys she found in day-to-day life.

Years later, she shared a short story she’d been working on with her two closest friends, and with their encouragement, this story became her first full length novel, Pulled.

Amy resides in Southern Arizona where she lives with her husband and three beautiful children, where she enjoys the freedom of working from home. Her favorite pastime is spending time with the ones she loves.

Wow...this is exactly why I went the Indie route. I don't want anyone telling me what and how I have to do to my books. But it's new and sometimes potholed filled territory. You gotta work smart and it's hard work but self-published i.e. Indie publishing is gaining a good foothold.

Yes, if you start your own company and print books yourself, either through a printing company or through POD place then you are self-published. For just eBooks then there is less need to use any publishing place because it's then about pricing it right and getting the word out!

That's what I spend my Monday's doing now. It's social media mondays...I network and find new sites where I can promote and be part of the industry that is growing so fast.

Does that help?

What places here have you found a good way to network and get your book out there?

Lorena
Hey Amy,

Just was reading your book on Amazon. It's good!
Your publisher sets your pricing? Why is that? I have mine at $4.99 but I'm going to change that right away. I think John Locke is right about people buying more one dollar books than a whole lot of expensive books.
And another author I met has done this, lowered her price, and she's getting a whole lot more sales. So, I am going to do it for a while and see how it goes. Since eBooks don't cost that much if your Indie. It's just an uploaded file.

I have my own company www.LorenaBBooks.com and I am exclusively Indie. I published my first book in 2005 and it did pretty well although I did have speaking, conference work incorporated since it was self-help. But now I am exclusively novels and the site will be the destination.

I'm building the platform now to bring the money down the line. But with eBooks there is real value in getting the chance to make some money. I still and will probably always do perfect bound books too. I still love books and so that will always be part of my store.

I think Indie (I like that better than Self-published) is the wave of the future. I have done it all and now working smarter. What do you want to know?

Lorena
Yep, I am actually going through that book and thinking his methods seem sound. Are you on Amazon.com too?

Lorena
Yep, I figured it out. Enough pushing buttons can get you where you need to go.
I too am an Indie author/publisher. I have my own company, www.LorenaBBooks.com and I am a full-time novelist. I have about nine novels in my creative queue. And working through the process of promoting. I just bought John Lockes, How I sold a millions books on amazon in five months..so hoping to get some insight there.

I will check out your site. Glad to be friends here. Have you done any giveaways on LibraryThing?

I am on Goodreads, find me there under Lorena Bathey. I love theses sites and plan to spend a lot more time on them in the future.

Have a great weekend,

Lorena
Amy, how did you set yourself up as an Author? Can't find anything in help.
thanks

Lorena
Hi Amy,
I'm a reader and an author. So I joined to talk about both. I have two books out right now and editing my third novel. I see you wrote a book too, we should compare notes. Are you an Indie author or do you have a publisher?
What do I read...alot and all different types of genres but not much on sci fi. I am deadly in a bookstore (almost as bad as shoe stores ;) But I have been discovering the joys of the local library.
I was having a heck of a time trying to remember half the books I've read to add to my profile...I know I am missing tons over the 43+years I've been reading.
What about you?? What's your favorite book right now?

Lorena
Thanks for being friends, Amy! I'm new to the site..if you know any tricks, I'd love to hear them!
