16 Things I’ve Learned After Self-Publishing 16 Books — Sara Flower Kjeldsen Writes

Indie authors, I think we can all admit that the path we’ve chosen is hard. But being honest about those difficulties and sharing them with one another is a great way to ease the burden and band together as indie authors – and that’s exactly what I felt from this post.
