Welcome to Wise, Ink!
We’re glad you stopped by.
Why Wise, Ink?
Today is the day your book goes from idea to reality, from a lonely project to a community endeavor, and from a cool step in the right direction to — well you get the point.
Wise, Ink. was started to help YOU, the indie author with a great idea who just needs good old-fashioned book smarts and the occasional kick in the pants.
Authors who have a clear picture of their goals, expectations, audience’s needs and publishing trends make wise publishing choices and create an overall better book. Indie authors are a necessary force. We keep this publishing industry on its toes. But even better, we’re doing great things for our readers.
If you’re a writer, published author, thought leader, blogger, content creator, or wordsmith, you’ve come to the right place. The voices behind Wise, Ink are Amy Quale and Dara Beevas, two editors, committed to empowering you with valuable tools to publish wisely.
Wise Ink was created to help content creators through the process of writing, publishing, and book marketing. We want to share what we’ve learned working in the publishing industry because we have to believe that the mistakes we’ve made, witnessed others make, and the curious conundrums of book publishing have to serve some greater purpose right?
The Future of Publishing
We also believe that 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 content in ways unimaginable. You’ll be picking up tricks and tips based on what we know works for authors.
What You’ll Get
We’re firm believers in sharing. You’ll get a lot of freebies on the Wise Ink site. The publishing industry is changing daily, so it makes sense to build community. We also know how challenging it is to be a writer, because we are writers. We know how taxing it can be to publish and market a book, because that’s what we do in our day jobs.
So we hope our friendly website will reinforce the following:
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. Also, send us an email if you want to connect for any reason. We love to promote authors, so if you’re interested in being a guest blogger, we’d love to hear from you!
