A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Successful indie authors often take that first step with an outline, taking their nebulous ideas and making them real — but how?

You might cringe at the thought of stifling the creative process. Or, you might be the author that geeks out at the opportunity to break out a tool and start organizing right away.

Whether you’re a Plotter or Pantser — or some combination of both — you’ll learn what bestselling authors do to take the first step.

★ In this inaugural issue of Indie Author Magazine…

Learn the top outlining methods successful indies use, and which will work for you.
