In every issue we tackle one area of focus, like outlining, first drafts, book covers, business, and retailers. You’ll get a 360-degree view of one main topic. And you’ll meet our Featured Author - someone we think will inspire you to see what’s possible in your own career.

Plus, our regular sections:

  • Bonus: You’ll hear from thought-leaders each month in our Op-Ed, and share your thoughts in our IAM polls.

 

Indie Author Magazine is crafted by working indie authors. It’s a magazine designed for writers blazing their own trails, even if they haven’t (yet) published a book. It’s the essential tool every writer needs in their toolbox.
