New Author Spotlights

Your response to our podcast has been astounding, so we decided to run a special Spotlight series between our regularly scheduled seasons! In these Spotlight episodes, we interview six acclaimed independent publishers who share their advice on what has and hasn't worked for them. Their stories are fascinating and the tips worthwhile! Be sure to tune in from our website or from your favorite podcast platform (just look for Go Publish Yourself: An IngramSpark Podcast).

Jason-Pinter-Spotlight-PhotoBestselling Author to Indie Publisher: Spotlight on Jason Pinter
Bestselling author and independent publisher Jason Pinter shares what he's learned working for major traditional publishers, being an author, and starting a publishing company of his own. He covers the importance of professional editing, why he started his own company, book promotion tips, and the art of embracing now-or-never! 

Carrie-Ann-Ryan-Spotlight-PhotoIndie Publishing for Business and Pleasure: Spotlight on Carrie Ann Ryan
Bestselling author of contemporary and paranormal romance Carrie Ann Ryan discusses her career as an indie publisher and offers tips for handling the business side of publishing and constant changes in the industry. She also shares relationship advice, tips to an engaging author platform, and what she thinks will be big in 2018!

New episodes will release every Tuesday until all six Spotlight episodes are available!

While this change should affect a very small percentage of users, we ask that you test your website browser’s compatibility now to ensure you're able to access your IngramSpark account when changes go into effect June 11, 2018.
