The Outlining Issue
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Successful indie authors often take that first step with an outline. They take their nebulous ideas and make them real — but how?
You might cringe at the thought of stifling the creative process. Or, you might be the author that geeks out at the opportunity to break out a tool and start organizing right away.
Whether you’re a Plotter or Pantser — or some combination of both — you’ll learn what bestselling authors do to take the first step.

About Indie Author Magazine

With a mission to educate, inform, and inspire authors taking charge of their writing and career, Indie Author Magazine publishes articles designed to cut the fluff for the author ready to sell more books.

 

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:

  • Indie Annie: Hear from our sassy, savvy, advice-giving aunt with a tipple in her teacup.
  • Devil in the Details: Avoid the mistakes readers catch that kill their experience
  • Technology: Dive deep into the tools that successful authors use.
  • Craft: Write better, cleaner prose - and discover the books, podcasts and tools to achieve it.
  • Tropes: All the promises your readers expect you to keep broken down by genre.
  • Marketing: Quick actionable 10-Tips, plus the insider information for what’s working right now.
  • 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.
