Successful Indie Publishing With Aileen Erin

June 24, 2019

Today’s guest is Aileen Erin, who is half-Irish, half-Mexican, and 100% nerd—from Star Wars to Star Trek, she geeks out on Tolkien’s linguistics, and has a severe fascination with the supernatural. Aileen has a BS in Radio-TV-Film from the University of Texas at Austin, and an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. She lives with her husband and daughter in Los Angeles.

Aileen joined me today to talk about maintain readers interest – and her own – while writing an eight book series. Also covered, how urban fantasy is dead… in traditional publishing. But a smart indie writer can make a decent living at it, the indie experience at BookCon, and how to market without big publisher push behind you.
