The Freedom to Choose & GIVEAWAY

*Congratulations to: Yto, Darlene, Esther, and Sarah, winners of the Indie-Pedence day eBook giveaway. Emails have been sent out.*

For GraveTells Indie-Pendence Week blog Hop Event, I'd like to start out by listing what indie authorship means to me.

The Freedom to Choose:

- My titles

- Cover art

- Cover artist

- Copy editors

- Publication dates

- Price

- AND the freedom to Take Risks. I have a scene in Entangled in which a character plays a horrible prank on Graylee Perez one of the mornings she wakes up for her turn in her twin sister's body. I'm pretty sure an editor would have made me cut it. When you're indie, I feel like you have the option of writing edgier fiction and the chance to take readers by surprise.

During Indie-Pendence Week, sign up to win 1 of 4 eBooks. Winners choice of either Entangled or Duplicity. (INTERNATIONAL)

Check out the following participants for more indie posts and more giveaways. I'm thrilled to see S.M. Boyce - author of The Grimoire: Lichgates - on here. She has a fantastic indie resource section of her blog. I also put a link to an article she did on choosing cover artists, including an interview with me about my cover process.


  1. Hope you had a great 4th of July, Nikki!

    The freedom to take risks is one of the most rewarding aspects of self-publishing. And you can get away with so much more.
