WHAT INSPIRED ME TO BECOME AN INDIE AUTHOR










WRITING BOOKS CAN BE LIKE ANY OTHER TALENT, SOMETIMES ONE HAS TO SORT THROUGH A LOT OF DOUBTS TO FIND THE MAGIC AUTHOR BUTTON. AMAZON HELPED DO THAT FOR ME. I WILL ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL.


ANNA PATTERSON:
What inspired you to become an indie author?
I think there are all sorts of things which make up a writer. Of course a writer has to be another thing to. I think writers show signs of being writers long before people take them seriously on this writing business.
I myself took a few detours along the way. But one day I was sorting boxes of papers and a friend said, “Don’t you ever throw anything away.”
“Actually,” I said, “I’m rather afraid I might be throwing away a Masterpiece!”
As I put the boxes away, I thought of my dream of someday holding a book I wrote (myself) in my hands. I had struggled to do this for years and failed.
One day a Facebook friend was talking about how she went “Indie”. I was intrigued and went looking for what this meant.
One day, my husband said, “What are you waiting for?”
That was in the Year 2012. It has enriched my life. I have friends all over the world. Yes, I have books all over the world. I have the most beautiful moments, talking writing with other writers, would be writers, just people who like to read and it just goes on and on. I read more, because I still love to do that.

I’d like to tell you how I loved learning how to down load an eBook and how to publish one. And I would tell you how it felt to actually publish a paperback book on Amazon and got that box of books, and saw it for the first time in my hands. I can’t explain it. I just cry.

THIS OCTOBER, AMAZON IS CELEBRATING THE INDIE AUTHOR PHENOMENA. YOU MIGHT WANT TO CHECK THIS OUT.

NEW WESTERN OUT

https://www.amazon.com/Winds-Song-Love-Burnished-Star/dp/1497541646?ie=UTF8&ref_=asap_bc

SHARING LOVE OF ALL THINGS WESTERN

CELEBRATING OUR LOVE FOR WESTERN GENRE
WE are having a Heat Wave and just trying to stay cool in what I consider monstrous weather conditions.
My mother and daddy, many years ago, had a solution which I still cherish as a memory:
We would just go to the movies.
Every Saturday we went to the movie, walked down town, ate at the local Dime Store, usually a cold sandwich, bacon and tomato, or sliced cold cut with chips and a pickle.
Then we walked over to the Movie Theater, an elaborate and wonderful scene, with velvet seats, crimson curtains which hid the screen, and mock gold trim and rather lavish all around the room. We talked in hushed tones until the movie started.
The movie did not start without all sorts of short films and things like that.
Saturday could mean a series of Western films.
Going to the movie was what we considered an all-day affair, but we would be home by early afternoon.
I REMEMBER Once, when my dad, a fan of Actor John Wayne, actually drove us to a place where one of that famous actor’s movies had been shot. I think the movie was Stage Coach, but I’m not sure.

So in a total admission to loving Westerns to this day, I started writing books with a Western flare or even a theme. If you are having a Heat Wave or just a rather long Summer with not much to do, I suggest you might follow me back to nostalgic themes which continue to delight.
