My Review:

I thought I’d burnt myself out on writing books over the years, but it appears I was wrong. Adam’s conversational style of writing meant I had this unpacked and read within a few hours. As a personal development author and blogger, I have a huge affinity to any book that talks about mindset. To discover a book that combines my two favourite topics (writing and the mind) was always going to score points.

The title implies that this book is targeted at independent authors. However, I feel any writer would benefit from the wisdom within these pages. Learning to be more productive, dealing with overwhelm and burnout, and understanding profit and ROI are all vital tools for any author (independent or otherwise).

The section on Encountering Doubt resonated with me the most as I suffer from terrible bouts of self-doubt and imposter syndrome. As I was devouring this chapter, I wondered if Adam had somehow listened in on my counselling sessions!

As with most non-fiction books, I purchased this as a paperback as I have an innate desire to make notes in the margins – there are LOTS of notes in the margins as there are many ideas I want to try thanks to this book.

I’m fortunate to have signed with a medium sized publisher. However, I also have a few titles floating around from my early indie days. This book has given me the kick up the backside I needed to make a plan of action for 2019 and beyond – because it’s all about the long-term.

Any writer (new or old) will find wisdom and insight in The Indie Author Mindset and the desire to change your way of thinking and transform your writing career are incentives enough to buy this book.
