Want to self-publish a book?

With the rise of Kindle and other e-readers, self-publishing (sometimes called “indie publishing) is on the rise. Writers no longer have to get through the elusive “gatekeeper” of an agent or editor to get their works in the hands of readers.

The readers are now accessible to you through self-publishing. 

I plunged into self-publishing in 2013. Had a lot of ups and downs along the way, but I’m now an Amazon bestselling author. And I’m sharing a few mistakes with you that you can avoid. Click the button below to learn more. 

5 Mistakes to Avoid in Self-Publishing

A Word from Elaine


I’m Elaine Calloway and I write paranormal/fantasy books (with romantic elements) for adults. Currently, I’m writing the Southern Ghosts Series, a series about the living, the dead, and the eerie in-between. There will be approximately 10 books in this series.

My other series, The Elemental Clan Series, is a good vs. evil themed set of tales between Elementals who possess power over water, fire, earth, and wind, and their battle to protect innocent humans from the evil fallen angels. This series will conclude with Book 5, Penance, coming later in 2016.

When I’m not writing, thinking about writing, or dreaming about writing (when is that?!?!?!) I also enjoy photography. Essentially, taking photos is like writing. It’s a means of capturing a moment to immortalize. With books, those moments are kept alive on paper. With photos, it’s on digital media (what used to be film…)

Over the years, I’ve developed my own set of tips for taking better photos regardless of your camera equipment. If you want to take better snapshots with your cell phone camera or a high-end one, click the link for your free tips: 5 Tips for Better Photos
