Anne R. Allens Blog: Indie Publishing in 2013: Why We Cant Party Like Its 2009.


After reading the above blog, my head is left spinning. Part of me wants to dump Amazon all together for what they are doing. I thought it was great what they were doing for the Indie Authors and now, they have put so much restrictions on us it is making it hard for us. And not only that, they are going to other companies they pay and putting restrictions on them, or they will not pay them. What are we Indie authors supposed to do? What is left out there for us? Especially now that some of the big publishing houses are buying each other out or changing their publishing formats.

I don’t know about anyone else, but this leaves me scared. I was going to release an updated version of one of my books and put for sale again on Amazon but now I am not so sure I want to do that. At least, maybe not Amazon exclusively. This will take some great thinking and praying.

What are your thoughts about the above blog? Does this change your perspective of Amazon and where you will be publishing and/or buying your books in the future?

A Daughter's Reflection

A Daughter’s Reflection – Updated Publication Time Frame

This past week and especially this morning I have been hard at work with this re-write and last night I had hit a block. I was so confused where to go, so what did I do. I literally just dropped my papers and pen on my desk and prayed for guidance. God has answered my prayer and more quickly than I had expected. I not only know what to do next, I am almost finished with this re-write and this will be the last re-write because I finally, the first time since 2007, feel comfortable and happy with how my story turned out.

So I am going to finish working on the last chapter of this book and then it will just be making the corrections on the manuscript on my computer and then I will be releasing the book for publication. I am looking to have this posted to Amazon by tonight and it should be available in Kindle form by tomorrow. The paperback should be available by the weekend. I will keep you posted the closer I get to publishing the Kindle version and then the paperback.

Keep your eyes open for the updated release!!! Free Kindle promo will be coming soon.
