Self-Publishing Success Stories: Elena Greene

Excerpt from the Writers Unboxed's "Making a Comeback in the Digital Age"

It’s the kind of writing success story that I love. I knew you would too, so I asked Elena to guest post with us on how she was able to revive her career by capitalizing on the new digital paradigm, and sell more books than she did when she was traditionally published. Happily for us, she obliged. Enjoy!
Elena Greene:  [. . . . .]  I have now earned more on Lady Dearing’s Masquerade than I did the first time around. I expect my other and more recent reissues to do well too. Without this income, I’d be seeking a part-time job at this point. Instead, I’ve been able to get back to my interrupted work-in-progress and I’m very happy about that!
