Publishing as an independent   (1 Hour - General Discussion - Rating: G)
What do you face as an independent publisher? How do you become known? The answer is to become known as a person, and develop a "BRAND" that people recognize.

I'm currently working on two others, due out by Dec. 2017 or in '18. Also, if you write "Romance," new data shows that "Clean" books are up *430 %* in Kindle sales. Personally, I won't buy/review books with explicit sex. (I.e. soft porn, whether in Kindle or print format.) Especially if there is no "warning" of "adult content" (M or above ratings).
