About Authors

Author Website Design CompaniesAn indie author is a writer who publishes their work without the help of an established press. Often called self-publishing authors, they are responsible for editing, producing, distributing, and marketing the books they write.

There are three kinds of self-publishing authors:

1) The Self-Publishers: Primarily interested in writing, and the content of the book. They have relatively little interest in the business side of things.

2) The Indie Authors: These are the writers who are working to become fulltime author-publishers. Some arrive at this stage from having produced a book and now wanting to take it further: find readers, earn money, set up in author business.

3) The Authorpreneurs. These are succeeding in author business. They have mastered three different sets of skills: writing good books, publishing them well, and running an author business.
