I am exposed in Indie Authors Naked by @lorenkleinman

For about seven years, I was a member of a nudist resort. I was never a purist nudist, the type who would only go on nude holidays, walk around nude in the house, hang out with other nudists, etc.

My goal was to get out of the city on summer weekends and take in the rays in a beautiful environment. It just happened to be a resort for nudists. The private hideaway, replete with a lake, sauna, whirlpool, tennis courts, and billiard tables (you can laugh, I hear you) welcomed children and adults, encouraged family memberships. Single men could only join with a female partner. The property was owned by an elderly couple – their place, their rules.

That was many years ago. As a writer, I never thought I’d be caught naked, but here I am. Metaphorically naked, that is.

Indie Authors Naked, edited by poet, Loren Kleinman, exposes some terrific indie writers. The book is brilliantly laid out. Each author is introduced by someone who knows their work or has some relationship to them as a writer. My wonderful editor, Annetta Ribken did me the honour of writing my introduction. The actual interviews shed light on questions of craft, motivation, and the publishing industry. There is a terrific cross-section of writers, which makes for a compelling and informative read.

Authors both traditionally and self-published are represented in this book, so for anyone interested in publishing, you will learn about the process from an author’s perspective, and the reasons for their choices.

Indie Authors Naked officially releases January 15th in ebook and print, but the digital version is available NOW on Amazon.

I feel privileged to be included in this book with the likes of indie media darlings, James Franco and Hugh Howey, as well as accomplished writer friends, Rachel Thompson, J. Alexander Greenwood, Christoph Paul and many others.

I hope you will pick up the book and learn more about all the wonderful indie authors exposed in it.

About Amy Holman Edelman

amy edelman

Amy Holman Edelman launched IndieReader, the essential consumer guide to self-published books and the people who write them, way back in 2007. Since then, indie authors have stormed the bestseller lists, been courted by trad publishers and (after all that), finally gained a modicum of respect. 

Amy self-published her first book, The Fashion Resource Directory, back in the 80s, long before POD and Amazon and e-readers roamed the land. Her second and third books (The Little Black Dress and Manless in Montclair), were traditionally published (by Simon & Schuster and Shaye Areheart Books, an imprint of Crown).

As an author and a publicist with over 20 years’ experience, Amy’s goal for IndieReader is no less than to make indie a respected and desirable category within the publishing world. This book is just one step in that direction.

Just Another Cancer Story – A Guest Blog for @RachelintheOC

Friend, best-selling author, and social media maven (I won’t call her a guru because I know she hates that!), Rachel Thompson invited me to write a personal guest blog for her.

She’s had incredible writers who’ve covered mental illness, losing a child, and abuse, just to name a few topics.

You can read my post entitled: Just Another Cancer Story.

Please leave a comment on Rachel’s blog for a chance to win a copy of my book,  Spring into Summer.
