The next entry in my Mystery Thriller Week series on independent publishing is from L. C. Hayden. I read this addition to the Harry Bronson thrillers, and was thoroughly entertained.
Have you been traditionally published (novel, short story, or non-fiction)?
I have been published by Five Star and Top Publications, both traditional publishers. I’m still published by Harlequin.
What type(s) of fiction do you most enjoy reading? Favorite recent read?
I read mostly thrillers and sometimes an occasional inspirational novel. I just finished reading Abbott’s The First Order. Really enjoyed that.
Why did you choose to publish this book independently?
I enjoy the freedom and the ability to control what happens to my book. By placing my book on Amazon, I have world coverage—something that would not happen immediately with a traditional publisher. Only a few traditionally published authors go on to sell world rights. I also enjoy receiving higher royalties per book sold. I like the ability to download my novel, change whatever needs to be changed, and upload it again—all within a day or two.
Have you enjoyed the experience / process? Would you recommend Indy publishing to others?
I would definitely recommend Indy publishing—but the key word is Indy. We all need editors and the services of other professionals. Indy publishing is great.
Give a blurb for your story.
For Bronson, this was going to be an easy assignment. Find Roger and Norma, the teens that stole an important book and return it to its original owners. But when Bronson locates the book, Roger reveals the truth behind the book’s existence—a truth so shocking that Bronson is forced to help them escape.
Then Ellen, his partner’s ex, gets kidnapped and Bronson is forced to decide who he will save: Ellen or two stranded teenagers who look up at him for their survival.
Who will he choose? His decision will determine who lives—and who dies.
