Trash Traditional Publishing and Pursue Progressive Planning – Ciara Knight @ciaratknight @MsBessieBell

Trash Traditional Publishing and Pursue Progressive Planning

by  Ciara Knight

I’m honored to be part of the INDIESTRUCTIBLE: INSPIRING STORIES FROM THE PUBLISHING JUNGLE led by Jessica Bell, and backed by so many influential and talented authors.

Only in the world of indie publishing do so many authors band together to produce a helpful and insightful book. With twenty-nine essays about the publishing world created by experienced indie authors, I’ll be the first one to buy my copy.

Indie publishing is exciting, but is definitely full of obstacles. This is not a how-to guide. Instead, it is full of useful information including insights into the publishing world, successful experiences, passions about the business and individual writing.

In my personal essay, Trash Traditional Publishing and Pursue Progressive Planning, I share the trials and tribulations I faced when I diverted from traditional to indie publishing. I’ve also included insights of what I’ve learned to assist new authors to avoid the same pitfalls.

When a reader finishes this book, they will be inspired to share their own work with the world and be a little more equipped to trudge through the trenches brandished with personal knowledge to help them navigate the twists and turns of indie publishing.


100% of proceeds will be donated to, a movement which breaks the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations through service and education.
