Successful Indie Authors Share Their Secrets

Over on the blog for the Alliance of Independent Authors, they’re running a series of posts highlighting indie authors who have had great success. The authors share their secrets and other tidbits about their journeys to success.  The latest post features Lilian Hart, who when asked What was the single best thing you ever did? responded by saying:

Besides self-publish in general? Because that has worked out pretty well, I’d say!  The best thing I did was write the MacKenzie series. Those books are 70% of my monthly income, and readers get more and more attached with every book.

The rest of the interview is interesting, but my favorite part is when Liliana says, “Once you start self-publishing you have to constantly “feed the beast.”  This echoes one of the mantras I’ve heard again and again in my research–your backlist will sell your frontlist and vice-versa.
