Using my own recent journey, I will discuss the pros and cons, ins and outs of being an indie author in today’s world. I will discuss writing process, publishing paths, and marketing methods. I will give real world advice and cut away the unrealistic expectations. And lastly, I will leave the audience with hope for their own writing goals.
Brian Fitzpatrick was born and raised in Southern California, and still resides there with his wife and son. His exposure to horror and science fiction films and books at a young age influenced his writing from the beginning. Fitzpatrick has written stories most of his life, but didn’t get serious until two decades ago when the lure of Hollywood drew him to screenwriting. With his latest project, sci-fi thriller, Mechcraft, he returns to fiction and looks forward to writing the entire trilogy and accompanying story lines.
