LIFE AS AN INDEPENDENT WRITER
Around that same time I had a literary agent, Robert Brown, who's a prince of a man, suggest I try publishing the book as an ebook on Amazon. He told me to charge 1 or 2 bucks and get a lot of readers to try it out. He thought the book was strong enough to attract many fans. After all it had won the Southwest Writers Contest, Thriller category. So I went into this indie publishing thing very reluctantly. The question was, "Did I want readers, or did I want to tell my writing friends I had a traditional publishing deal?" The fact was, I wanted readers.
