Indie Author Day 2018

On Saturday, October 13, 2018, independent authors everywhere celebrated. That’s right, there’s a day set aside to celebrate indie authors. This year, I spent a few hours with one of the most celebrated indie authors, Andy Weir (author of The Martian and Artemis), and 16 other indie authors at the Livermore Library. After Andy spoke to an audience for an hour about his journey as an indie author and how he comes up with his stories, he autographed copies of his books, then talked with each of the other authors.

Andy and I commiserated on being bullied as kids. I told him I actually wrote a scene right out of my life which is depicted in my middle-grade anti-bully novel, Reluctant Paladin.

I talked with readers stopping by and manned my booth.
