Indie Author Spotlight – Janeil Harricharan

One of the most inspiring posts I see on my many author forums is when someone takes the time to share their story. Each Friday, I’m going to feature a different indie author to help inspire all of you!

What is your pen name?

Janeil Harricharan

What genre do you write in?

Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy and Time Travel.

How many books have you published?


What inspired you to become a writer?

Not finding what I wanted in the library, and wanting to create something better than what I read about.

What is your indie success story?

I was able to buy coffee. My success is something that I’m working on developing, and has not gotten the attention I needed to to make it prosper.

What are your marketing and advertising strategies?

This is currently in flux, but my previous strategies was reaching out to certain members I knew from the deviantART community. As my first book featured creators from the platforms, the book also shared similar content such creators liked. Commissioning fanart of the protagonist then having the artist backlink to the book helped with some traffic too.

What are you working on right now?

I’m currently working on a fantasy horror serial that I post to my blog, and two visual novel projects, one that’s been in the works for quite awhile. I hope to finish most of them this year.
