The Courage of Dreams

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney

You’ve written your book, edited it until it shines, and now you’re ready to send it out into the world. 

But how? What retailers should you use? What do all the terms mean?

There are a lot of questions that can lead to uncertainty when preparing to release your book into the wild. But never fear—we answer all these questions and more in this month’s issue on Distribution. We look at what you need to upload to Amazon, the various distribution channels, and how to get your books into libraries. 

One of my favorite articles this month is our feature on networking at conferences—a topic I wish I’d known more about before attending my first or even second conference, where I spent a goodly amount of time hiding behind the few people I already knew. 

Putting our books out into the world is a dream for many of us. But as with anything that involves risk, there is fear associated with that dream. But if we have courage, we can make that dream of being published a reality.

    As a managing editor at Indie Author Magazine, Robyn Sarty brings over a decade of experience as an editor and proofreader. She is the author of two novels and several short stories, and manages her own publishing company. She loves helping other authors with their books and can often be found nerding out over story elements with her friends. She spent five years as a project coordinator for an international engineering firm, and now uses those skills to chase writers instead of engineers and hopes it will be good training for her first marathon. Growing up as a third culture kid, books were the one constant in her life, and as such, Robyn believes that books are portals to the magic that lies within, and authors are wielders of that magic. She also admits to being a staunch, loyal, and unabashed supporter of the Oxford comma.
