What happens when your agent is now your ex husband and your publisher decides to put you out to pasture? You go indie!
New York Times best selling author Eileen Goudge has written 32 novels, sold over a million copies, and been translated into 22 languages. What she doesn’t have is a book deal.
To me this is a classic example of the “Big publishers” worrying about how to survive in the new self-indie world. Read this guest post on Anne R. Allens blog it is a wake up call for established authors who think they can’t be replaced.
Great article on what can happen to even a best selling author. There is some lessons to be learned here. If Eileen had started her own email list years ago she would have raving fans and sales every time she released a new book.
She wouldn’t of needed an agent, a publisher and all that other stuff they promise you. Like the article says she has a good editor and puts out good stuff. I am sure she will land on her feet in no time. If I was in Eileen’s situation I would have my email newsletter sign up on the top of all her pages on her site and blog more than once every 2 or 3 months.
