There are lots of blogs out there on the publishing business, and writing in general, but I thought there was room for one on indie publishing from the perspective of an international writer. First, a little about me. I am a 33-year-old Irish writer, living in Stockholm. Notice I said writer, not author. My mother always said I was a writer, authors get paid. I got paid $100 last year. She said I need to be making more than that. And you know what? She’s right.
