On Thursday, August 25, 2022, Cendrine Marrouat and I hosted our second #AuthorIndieSpeak chat on Twitter, where we invited indie authors to meet and discuss random things related to writing and publishing. We had a robust conversation with indie authors around the United States, Canada, and Britain! We discussed all manner of things, including how to stay motivated to write, the importance of having a writing community, strategies for in-person promotion, and the harms of Amazon’s ebook return policy. Below are some highlights from the conversation.
