Summary

Do you want to be a more relaxed author? There are plenty of books and tips on writing faster, learning more marketing tactics and strategies, trying to maximize your ranking, hitting the top of the charts, juicing the algorithms, and hacking different ad platforms. While these are all important things - which the authors themselves regularly write and talk about - it's also important to recognize that your author journey is a marathon, and not a sprint.

Joanna Penn and Mark Leslie Lefebvre have been in the business long enough to see authors burning out and leaving the writing life, because they turned what they love into a hamster wheel of ever more production and marketing tasks they hate. It doesn't have to be this way.

This book is a collection of tips on how to be a more relaxed author - and return to the love that brought you to writing in the first place. Includes: Relaxed Writing, Relaxed Publishing, Relaxed Marketing, and Relaxed Business.

Packed full of useful tips

Honestly, I wasn’t sure I would get much from this book. I thought it would just be a book of the authors saying do what works for you and ignore the rest. While that message is definitely in there, there were tips in each chapter that helped me shift my mindset and feel good about some of the choices I’ve made so far. There’s also “permission” to make choices that are different from the usual advice for indie authors, but feel more authentic for me. I liked that both authors maintained their original voice so I could understand whose perspective each of the tips were from since both authors have had success in different areas.
