Taking Charge

You need to take charge of your career, which includes mapping out your "degree program". Guys, this is the School of Hard Knocks, also known as Real Life. There is no true degree program out there, at least not one that I've found. However, I can map out some places and books that you can and should read if you want to learn and grow as a Real Indie Author. I'm not offering courses at this time. I might later on down the road, but for now, there are other courses you can take and plenty of books you can read. 

Where to Begin

First, you need to determine where your biggest weaknesses are. For some of you, that will be in the Craft: structural story elements, POV, Voice, etc. For others, that will be in marketing, ads, launching your book, etc. 

This is designed with all of you in mind. Go through all of them, or just the ones you feel you need help with.
