When I heard about Indiestructible, my heart began to race. I’ve never been an author to think self-publishing or small-press publishing is the only way to go, but I have always strongly believed no one path is best for any one author. Whenever I stop by a blog post that shouts and screams things like “don’t ever use adverbs!” or “never start a novel with your character waking up!” or “self-publishing is for those not good enough”, I get a nasty taste in my mouth.
I don’t believe in rules for writers. I believe in good grammar and spelling. I believe most stories follow the same types of structure to work, but I do not believe there are rules everyone should follow no matter what. That’s what makes writing art and creative. It’s not a mold. We are not robots or machines. And publishing … well, it’s the same thing. There is no one way to do it. Any way you go about it can be done poorly, but the opposite is also true.
So Indiestructible is everything I embrace. It loudly declares how proud authors are of going down a different path from the norm. I’ve never been one to follow the bigger group of people. When I married, I had a dress made instead of going to buy one. It was from a Renaissance pattern because I wanted something completely different. I’ve always liked to feel different and unique, so it’s no wonder that in my publishing career I have followed a similar path—one not so well trodden. We authors who trod this path are indestructible. We are not better than others who go a more traditional route. What we are is unconventional, and I think that makes a difference in how we approach our writing. It gives us a fun, creative, and unique flair that adds to the richness of everything else out there.
I hope writers all of kinds pick up Indiestructible and leave with a wider view of what’s out there. I know I have!
