The Indie Author Mindset: How changing your way of thinking can transform your writing career.

I read this book recently as I felt my writing career, and I, needed a kick up the backside. Who better to turn to for advice than the hugely successful writer, Adam Croft. It wasn’t always that way though and Adam makes it clear that a lot of work and time has gone into him becoming what appears to be an overnight success – but isn’t that always that way?

This book is easy to read, is written in manageable chapters and is full of common sense and good humour. It covers the professional, visionary and business mindset needed looking at the problems you will face – encountering doubt, overwhelm and burnout – as well as the positives of how, where and when to publish.

The Indie Author Mindset talks about short v long term thinking, when to listen and when not to listen, wide v exclusive and the power of a mailing list. It also covers data, and its importance. This is an area that I have been extremely poor on in the past, barely managing to get a promotion together let alone analysing whether it was effective or not. So I found this section particularly useful and I know I will be returning to it again and again.

I think this book would be useful for writers of all levels of experience because it gives a lot of information to guide those who are starting out as well as being full of useful reminders plus new learning, of that I am sure as things change all the time, for those of us who’ve been doing this for a while. Highly recommended.

About Georgia Rose

Georgia Rose is a writer and the author of the romantic and suspenseful Grayson Trilogy books: A Single Step, Before the Dawn and Thicker than Water. A short story, The Joker, based on a favourite character from the series followed and is free to download from Amazon. Her fourth novel, Parallel Lies, a standalone, encompasses crime along with Georgia’s usual blending of genre. Following a long stint working in the law Georgia set up her own business providing administration services for other companies which she does to this day managing to entwine that work along with her writing. Georgia’s background in countryside living, riding, instructing and working with horses has provided the knowledge needed for some of her storylines; the others are a product of her passion for people watching and her overactive imagination! Her busy life is set in a tranquil part of rural Cambridgeshire in the UK where she lives with her much neglected husband and dog. Their son, currently at university, comes and goes and their daughter, having delighted them all for long enough, has eventually moved out, got married, and is discovering the joys of being all grown up and having a mortgage.
