Thea Lowe and Jennifer Milius
Welcome to episode 4 of Talking with Authors. Today we wrap up the interviews I conducted at the Indie Author Day event at the Central Public Library in Virginia Beach. This was a great event and if you have not already done so, listen to the first three episode to hear the first six interviews. The Central Library held a great event and I plan on going to next year’s Indie Author Day activities.
Reflecting on the event, I was really impressed by the variety of genres represented by the authors. Indie Authors are writing the stories that people have wanted but a large scale business model could never support. I love the fact that these authors are addressing the desires of various readers who have gone ignored for so long. E-Books and the large online stores have removed the barrier of distribution. Now we face the challenge of getting news of books in front of readers. In my own small way, I want this podcast and my website to be one of the vehicles that brings readers these great independent voices.
