There is a lot of information out there about writing and indie publishing your book: the proven methods, scientific patterns, undisputed processes, and “sacred approaches.” Not to mention the foolproof formula that guarantees success in your niche, the perfect marketing plan…and I could go on.

With all these “shoulds” wrapped around writing, it’s easy to forget the magical art itself and why you wanted to write in the first place. Well never fear! We have a Conscious reminder about books and how they all got started.

Note that below you will not find information about submitting your most engaging chapter to an editor, or the power of a professionally designed book cover for indie publishing. Instead you will find interesting info about the birth of the modern book and its evolution over the ages. Happy Shifting!

Whether writers wish to self- or indie-publish we inspire them through every step to promote their unique perspectives.
