Indie Author Spotlight – L.D. Parker

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?

L.D. Parker

What genre do you write in? Why do you love it?

Women’s Fiction/Satire

How many books have you published?


What inspired you to become a writer?

I love the thought of bringing characters to life and then moving readers emotionally.

What is your indie success story?

This is more a labour of love than anything, but I was pleased with the final product in that I felt I accurately transcribed the characters onto the page as I originally saw them in my head.

What are your marketing and advertising strategies? What works for you? What doesn’t?

Newlists, discounts, giveaways

What is the best piece of self-publishing advice that you’ve ever received?

Keep writing. When you are finished one book, start working on the next.

Anything else fun or notable that you would like to share about yourself?

All my best story ideas came from hiking deep into the woods.

What are you working on right now?

Working on the second installment in the series. NO ETA on when I will be done, though.
