Welcome to Wise Ink!
So the journey begins! Welcome to our blog. I guess we should start with an introduction. The voices behind Wise Ink are two editors who work with indie authors in their day job (Dara and Amy). Indie publishing is our obsession and after long days in the office pouring over books and mentoring interesting self-publishers, we began brainstorming ways to come interact with even more authors. We’ve learned a lot and we think some of it might actually be useful. And so Wise Ink was born.
Wise Ink was created to help indie authors through the process of writing, publishing, and book marketing. We want to share what we’ve learned because we have to believe that the mistakes we’ve made, witnessed others make, and the curious conundrums of self-publishing have to serve some greater purpose right?
We also believe that indie authors are the future of publishing. No really. We work with fascinating people with incredible stories and we’ve personally witnessed their ability to accomplish great things, change lives, and use their books in ways unimaginable.
Here’s what we hope you take away from Wise Ink:
1. If you have a book dream, there’s a good reason for it. You have nothing to lose in figuring out if writing and then publishing your book is the right move.
2. If you know you want to publish your book on your own, all you need is a plan (and chutzpah).
3. Self-publishing is work, but it’s fun, and there are LOTS of resources out there to help you.
And that’s it. We hope you’ll keep checking us out because we have a lot to say.
