Things I love about the indie author world: 1) the innovation and 2) the cooperative environment, where everyone is giving each other a hand up, rather than competing against each other. This is true for the wider author community, but it’s doubly true for indie authors, who have the freedom to take cooperation to a whole different level.
Which is exactly what Maggie Dana and Barbara Morgenroth have done with their horse-themed stories for children and young adults:
Instead of competing in the niche-market of horse-stories-for-young-people, Barbara and Maggie have joined forces, helping each other learn the ropes of indie publishing, cross-promoting readers between their two fanbases, and even letting characters from one story make a guest appearance in the other’s story.
I loves it.
