Fresh from winning an IPPY award for her debut novel, See What Flowers, at the 2018 Independent Publisher Book Awards in New York City, Shannon Mullen spoke with me for this week's chapter of The Word Weaver Podcast.
Shannon Mullen's work has been published in The Globe and Mail, Thought Catalog, and her debut contemporary novel about love and mental illness is available online at Amazon.
In today's chapter, Shannon shares useful insights about her self-publishing journey with Amazon's CreateSpace publishing platform, including how she picked her book cover design using 99designs, what it felt like to win an award for her first novel, the financial challenges of being a self-published author, the writing routine that allowed her to complete a full manuscript, and her future writing goals.
If you've ever thought about self-publishing a book through Amazon's CreateSpace platform, this is the Word Weaver chapter for you!
