25 Self-Published Authors to Watch

Nice Article:

Quote:
The all-stars and up-and-comers in a new era of publishing,
and how they’ve made serious cash


Posted by Colleen McCarty on February 16th, 2012

In just the last two years, self-publishing has seen a whole new level of successes. This is mostly due to e-books and the lack of
barrier-to-entry for authors to upload their content to Kindle and iPad devices at the click of a button. This is not to say that everyone who has self-published over the last two years has been successful, but a lot has been learned about the industry – what’s possible and what is still up in the air. The industry is still finding it’s footing, but since 2010 there have been quite a few Cinderella stories, as well as many inspiring stories that allowed authors to follow their dreams and quit their day jobs.

These 25 authors are the movers and shakers of self-publishing. They have shown that it can be done – authors can be successful without major publishing houses. Each one of these trail-blazers has done it a different way and they have all started out at different places in their careers. The idea that you can put out a book and watch your bank account grow is still, and forever will be, a pipe dream, except in one of the cases below. These authors have used social media, appearances, speaking, film, journalism and just plain great content to market their books, and anyone aspiring to be on this list should be doing the same.

Without further ado, I give you the 25 Self-Published Authors to watch…

Wow - Thanks for posting this - was great to find that I was on this list - I didn't even know it existed.

For what it's worth I was asked by a fantasy forum to come up with 20 self-published speculative fiction authors worth noting so here is my list for people who enjoy science fiction and fantasy.
