    As lists at big houses shrink or stagnate, indie presses are fast becoming the best way to start your writing career. Find out more about the vast and diverse universe of independent presses, and how to find the press that best matches your writing. You’ll learn what these presses expect from their authors, and what authors should expect when publishing with an indie. Learn how to self-market your book, play the game of book publicity, and craft a first-time author experience that you’ll remember forever.
