INDIE AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT:
“[Being an indie author means] not having to conform to a traditional publisher’s idea of a sell-able book”
Paul Blake started writing in 2016 when he took a creative writing module to complete his Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree after failing far too many programming modules. He discovered a passion and has been writing since. His first novel, A Young Man’s Game was published in 2018. He regularly posts short stories on his website. He is currently outlining the sequel to A Young Man’s Game and also working on a ninja based novel. Paul is 43 and lives in London, England with his wife and three boys.
What Does it Mean to You to be an Indie Author?
Having the freedom to write the story you want to write, with the title you choose, and the cover you’ve designed. Not having to conform to a traditional publisher’s idea of a sell-able book or what the market is looking for. I would like their deadlines though, motivation can be a daily struggle.
What Do you Want Readers to Know?
I have a short story – Racing Vengeance – being published in the March issue of Kyanite Press
