Today I am going to take a break from my normal blog spotlight on fiction and look at the world of non-fiction and indie publishing. Several years ago my critique partners and I wrote a book on characters that we were lucky enough to get published. It was eventually picked up by Random House. After that book was published, one of the co-authors (Sue Viders) and I decided we wanted to continue offering non-fiction books on writing. We both taught writing classes (together and separately) so over the years we developed quite a bit of content as we studied writing and learned new methods that we could take to our students. We could see what worked and what didn't. We also could see where students needed more help and look for different concepts we could use to get the information across to them. We wanted our second book to be on plotting since we had focused the first on characters.
The publishing world has changed so much since we started out as writers and we applaud every new avenue that helps get the written word out to readers. We're by no means experts in indie publishing, and we are still learning, but now we get to teach and reach more beginning writers every day.
