"In less than two months, Bound has exceeded the sales goals I set for the first few years, and it's thanks to Amazon and KDP."

Kate Sparkes, author of the Bound Trilogy

I've dreamed of being a writer since I was a child, and until a few years ago I assumed the only way to find validation and success was to grab the attention of an agent and sign a contract with a traditional publisher. I wrote short stories for years but was too afraid to submit them anywhere, and finished a novel for the first time in 2011. That was an exciting moment, but it would be several years before I had anything I would consider ready for publication. Depression drained my energy and inspiration, and I went through periods when I couldn't write. I had young children at home who didn't appreciate me taking time away from them to work on my projects, and there was always the feeling that perhaps nothing would ever come of this, that I was wasting my time. Still, I worked. I carved out writing time when I could, I revised, I had writers I'd met through my blog take a look at my story, and then I revised again.

"I'm working my dream job, and I'm so pleased I chose independent publishing because it set me free to be the novelist and businesswoman I wanted to be."

Kate Avery Ellison, author of Frost

As an ambitious writer with a strong interest in the business side of publishing, the freedom of independent publishing-control over covers, titles, release dates, editors, and advertising-thrilled me. I loved writing, and I loved the idea of handling the business aspects of selling my books. Independent publishing could give me both. After stumbling across a blog post about the rising trends of self-publishing in 2010, I began daydreaming about the possibilities even as I tried to convince myself that it wasn't for me, and that I should continue my efforts to land a traditional publishing deal. Fortunately, I didn't listen.

"I realized that in order to sell books, potential readers needed to find them first. That's when I decided to put my books in KDP Select."

Rashelle Workman, author of Blood and Snow

I finished my first full-length novel in 2008. After receiving a contract with a small publisher in 2010 I believed my writing career was finally taking off. Then in 2011, right before my contracted novel was supposed to be released, the publisher went under and I was right back where I started.

It was devastating. But it was also a blessing in disguise.
