"It’s big bad world out there but I’m ready for it. I have my game face on and I am going to control my destiny … but only if you allow me.
An independent author is a misnomer. I think that no matter how independent you believe you are, there is always someone that you need to rely on. People might see an independent author’s life as glamorous, considering that they make their own hours and report to no one but themselves. But they wouldn’t be an author if they didn’t have readers that agreed with their career decision."
