Left Me Speechless Indie Authors by Loren Kleinman has made me rethink the true meaning of “democratization of writing and publishing” with Orna Ross Founder and Director of The Alliance of Independent Authors – exponentially growing in size and stature. In my humble opinion ALLi is a fantastic name. Loren Kleinman conducts interviews with Indie Authors. Many will have some kind of unique view on being an indie author making it more debatable in some way. The questions do change from author to author and the replies are sometimes clues as to why we keep on pondering on what truly drives a writer to write. An example is Eden Baylee who has been able to smash conceived notions about writing erotica to smithereens while her description of it all was awesome - I did gasp at the thought of how much of it was true. The moment Loren asked Eden Baylee to describe erotica writing – I was all ears. I found it was a sensational way of putting it all into few words. The way she talks about it turns out to be quite logical. Then, she was asked about what brought her to going indie…her answers were quite positive. It is a compilation of various author interviews whose answers are informative and interesting sparking the inner-core of any writer’s curiosity as to all the reasons to be or not to be an Indie Author encircled with some pros and cons. If there is a writer in you; this is a book I do recommend. Adriana LG
