Toby Neal is the USA Today bestselling author of The Wired Series, the Lei Crime series, and more.
Today she chats with us about getting started in the indie world, writing thrillers, co-authoring, branching out into new genres, and succeeding as an indie.
A few highlights from our chat
"Readers fuel my creative fire. Readers wanting my work, encouraging me, and saying, 'Where's the next one?' That's what keeps me going."
"When you're an indie who's doing well, you're doing both [writing and marketing.] You're a business person who's writing."
"We're focusing on building our email list because these are readers who belong to us... If you begin [when publishing your first book] with the plan that you're going to build your email list, you're off to a good start."
"I think of my series as trains. Each book is a car on the train the the leading book is the engine... I add fuel to them with new releases, a Bookbubs, trying out a new ad campaign or something that gives them exposure.."
"Pick something you care about a lot because passion will drive your writing."
