Indie-Pendence Week Giveaway (US/Int): When is self-publishing right for you?
Let's give a warm welcome to author Rachel Firasek!
Why self publish?
Hmmm…I’ve often asked myself this question—and I’ll admit, I’m by no means an expert.
I went into this writing gig knowing that I would have to work my patooty off in order to get where I wanted to be. I dreamed of signing with an agent and seeing my name and titles plastered across all of the lists.

Indie-Pendence Week Giveaway (US/Int): Ilona Andrews on the necessity of eye-catching cover art
Please help us welcome the lovely and talented Ilona Andrews to GraveTells today!
The old adage, although it's unfair, is true: people do judge the book by its cover. It's the "face" of your book and your best chance at catching the attention of your readers. Having the right cover is important for any writer, but when it comes to self-publishing, the cover truly becomes vital.

Indie-Pendence Week Giveaway (US/Int): Let the celebration begin!
Here at GraveTells, we do not discriminate against self-pubbed and small press authors. We believe that a story can be just as good when it's handled personally as it can when run through the gamut of traditional publishing. Now, don't get us wrong, traditional houses turn out some great stories and we're fangirls of... well, more than we should probably admit to... franchises distributed by the big name publishers. It's a tough industry to break into, though, and many authors have turned to self-publishing or to the smaller e-publishers that have developed since the e-book revolution.
