Indie Publishing Success

The indie movement for musicians began immediately after the internet began to be widely used. David Nevue, a leader in this movement, created his first website in 1995 and has been promoting his music online ever since. These musicians take full responsibility for their careers. They pay for all the recording costs and then all the manufacturing costs. It is not uncommon for an initial run of CDs to be 1000-5000 copies. Indie musicians are also quite adept at "grassroots" marketing. Most indie musicians never become a household name but there are thousands and thousands of them that make a full-time living pursuing the craft they love.

While print on demand is useful for an author to get a book in print at nominal costs it is a terrible way to go for someone who wants to make a living as an author. It is just not cost effective and books that are printed that way are not competitively priced when compared to those printed by the big publishers.

It's time for more authors to take their dream of making a living as an author more seriously by committing the funds necessary to print their books in bulk and take the responsibility to promote them. This route provides a much higher profit potential in addition to being able to offer your book at more affordable prices.

I absolutely believe in the ability of independent authors to make a full-time living if that is their dream.

Please share any successes you have had promoting your own book.

Here’s a look at my latest historical romance, DANGEROUS INDENTURE. This full-length novel is set in Pennsylvania Colony and blends a sensual romance with mystery and suspense.

DANGEROUS INDENTURE

Indentured for five years… how long can Shauna resist her master’s son?

Desperate to escape her past in Ireland, Shauna Farrow signs on to become an indentured servant to Joshua Stewart, a wealthy man in Pennsylvania Colony. But a life of servitude quickly turns to drudgery, and Shauna’s hopes for starting over and creating a better life for herself are waning—until she meets her master’s roguish son, Ashton.

Ashton needs to redeem himself in his father’s eyes and earn the respect he has always longed for. Meeting Shauna turns his life around, and he sets out to win her heart. Torn between propriety and passion, Shauna struggles against her growing attraction to Ashton as long as she can.

But amidst their flirting, something dark stirs. Shauna soon discovers why no other servants wanted to work for the strange Stewart family.

Stewart House has an unsavory reputation: a previous servant died there under mysterious circumstances. When another servant goes missing in the middle of the night, Shauna is convinced that a member of the family is responsible.

Shauna’s investigation leads her close to the truth, and yet, she’s not sure who she can trust. Events take a deadly turn when she confronts the murderer and discovers the mystery of the Stewart family. 

 

Will Shauna be rescued before time runs out, or will she meet with the same fate as the other servants?

Title: Abduction Chronicles
By: Folarin Philip Banigbe
A CBM Christian Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
“It is in moments of trouble that we know the value of true friendships.” Folarin Philip Banigbe
.
Abduction Chronicles by Folarin Philip Banigbe relates a touching, spine-tingling, non-fiction account of his own abduction experience. Touching, this novel will captivate you as the author relates each encounter as he was abducted from his home in the middle of the night in his home country, Nigeria. 
.
He narrates the book and speaks of the events and his thoughts during the ordeal that paint a vivid picture, giving readers an inside view of the home invasion that quickly became life-threatening. Taken by thugs, forced to endure and overcome exposure to elements, lack of food and harsh weather, his abduction shares how God encountered him in his darkest moments. Triumphant, he came back from the evil of perpetrators seeking money to re-tell the truth of what really happened during his days gone missing.
.
Beginning his narrative of the moments when robbers cut into iron bars to get into the home, the author’s account is a minute-by-minute thrill ride. Readers will find themselves asking, what would I do in such a situation, faced with a Ak-47 and no weapons for defense? The author’s quick thinking throughout his abduction makes for a fast-paced and compelling read. In a unique fashion, he blends his prayers and thoughts to God, coupled with the Holy Spirit’s workings within the ordeal.
.
Author quote; "Spiritual insights into this abduction include: core values of The Full Gospel - Jesus and the salvation He brings, the Holy Ghost, the Voice of God, visions and dreams, and the Power of God to save and deliver."
.
As an added bonus, the author’s wife and daughter give their own accounts of the home invasion and days waiting for the author’s return. Intense moments are captured as the wife shares dialogue through phone calls and demands for ransom money that made each day’s dealings with Folarin’s captor’s delicate. Despite the raging emotions, Folarin’s wife gives thanks to God who gave her the peace and strength to survive the barrage of emotions a wife might have for her husband. 
.
Folarin Philip Banigbe has come out of the ordeal a better man, teaching others to help abduction victims through his foundation. A wonderful read.
.

Jan Hurst is a widow, mother, and retired executive, who built a business career over 30 very eclectic years in multiple business disciplines. She and her husband, Steve, were married 44 years, the first 24 years following his Air Force career. They had two daughters, who both became accomplished professional women and dedicated wives and mothers.
.
Jan enjoyed her early marriage as a homemaker, until their younger daughter started school. As returning adult students, Jan and Steve both completed college while working and supporting a family. Once Steve retired from the Air Force, Jan began her career, no longer having the interruptions of moving and job hopping.
.
She continued her education to earn an MBA and PhD in Business Administration Management. Jan focused on a personal ministry in business to lead organizations and share management approaches to incorporate Christian values.
.
Having grown up as an Air Force dependent, her passion was to show people that clicks and good ol’ boy approaches are not as productive or rewarding. She and her husband were both passionate about helping others and worked to live as they believed. They shared a special respect and admiration for each other up until the day they were parted. Jan is a witness willing to share her faith, love of God, and story. Losing her husband did not diminish her faith. Her faith has strengthened.
