If I had my choice, I would write all day, every day. Unfortunately, I still have to work, but thankfully I love what I do. In 2012, I established Walker Chatman Publishing an independent publishing company for indie authors. Walker Chatman Publishing is truly a labor of love! Typically, most authors are well versed on the creative side of the publishing, however there is a very real business element to what we do. I have embarked on a personal journey to educate myself, and fellow authors who are seeking resources to support their goal of becoming published. The Avid Readers Blog is an extension of those efforts. I hope you find the blog informative and useful as you continue to build an author platform to write, promote, and sell books.
