Tuesday, June 20 - AskAuthor chat and Live Writing Tips Broadcast

AskAuthor with Caitlin Jones at 3pm ET
Join YA gothic horror author Caitlin Jones and ShoreIndie editor Sione Aeschliman on Twitter's #AskAuthor hashtag as Caitlin answers your questions about her experience as an indie author. All are welcome to join the conversation!

Caitlin E. Jones is an author, freelance editor, and lover of all things dark and fantastic. A homeschooled student through most of her young life, she was raised in South Louisiana, where the myths still roam wild, and colorful characters roam wilder still. She chose writing as her profession shortly after realizing that joining the circus and being a princess were not viable options. Now, having been indie published and worked alongside publishers in Berlin for two years, she works to highlight everything that makes indie writing great.

She is the project founder behind Academia: Discussions and Blog and currently in pursuit of an English BA with a concentration in folklore. Her hobbies include film editing, procrastination baking, and cosplay.

Editor's Note: When I reached out to Caitlin, she had recently publisher her first book, THE SPECTRE AND THE GOVERNESS (March 2017), and I was impressed with the rave reviews and the book's high rankings at that early stage. Caitlin also blogs about writing on her website; this post about the relationship between anxiety and writing particularly caught my eye.

In honor of her ShoreIndie AskAuthor chat, THE SPECTRE AND THE GOVERNESS is free to download all week!

Sunday, June 25 - AskAuthor chat at 7pm ET & 24-hr Fiction Giveaway
Join fantasy author Rob Nugent and ShoreIndie editor Sione Aeschliman on Twitter's #AskAuthor hashtag as Rob answers your questions about his experience as an indie author. All are welcome to join the conversation!

Rob Nugent is a medieval low-fantasy author from the American Midwest. Inspired by the works of J.R.R. Tolkien as a child, Rob set a course that would take him from countless fantasy universes to delving deep into medieval studies. It is Rob’s firm belief that a medieval fantasy work is not only defined by its story, but by the immersive world in which it takes place.

Rob’s first self-published release was in 2015 with The Fallen Banner: Part I of the Chronicles of Aerothos. It is Rob’s goal to create various series within the world of Aerothos, bringing to life its bloody, intrigue-fueled history and countless tales.

Aside from writing, Rob is an avid musician, medieval reenactor, and live-action role-playing enthusiast.

Editor's Note: Rob is another emerging indie author I invited to join ShoreIndie because I was impressed with the sales ranking and rave reviews of his first book, The Fallen Banner (December 2015). He recently released his second book, TALES OF AEROTHOS: KNIGHTS OF THE WOLF. Rob has a lot to say about the self-publishing experience and is excited to talk with authors who are asking themselves the same questions he asked when he was making his decision to self-publish.

Rob has also generously agreed to let us give away three (3) paperback copies of TALES OF AEROTHOS: KNIGHTS OF THE WOLF. Woo hoo! Anyone can enter this giveaway. It is open from midnight to 11:59pm ET on June 25th.
