For many of us, writing is our passion. We chug along writing book after book, convinced we’re following our dreams. Rarely do we stop to ask ourselves whether we’re on the right path. Michael La Ronn did just that, reinventing himself, and in this encore presentation of his cover feature piece from the Q3 2019 edition of The Indie Author, our member magazine, offers five lessons he learned when reinventing the path to success.
The theme of this week’s @IndieAuthorALLi’s Twitter Chat (#indieAuthorChat) was Writing books by Hand vs Dictation vs Typing with ALLi’s Special Projects Manager, Debbie Young. The Indie Author Twitter Chat runs for an hour, weekly on Wednesdays, at 8pm UK Time on (3pm EST and noon Pacific Time).
