Indie Author Lifestyle was founded in 2019 by International Bestselling Author Angela J. Ford (the pantser) and YA Fantasy Author, Stephanie BwaBwa (the plotter).

Indie Author Lifestyle was created to support and encourage indie authors and enthusiasts at all stages of their careers by providing weekly advice, resources, and best practices for finding success as an author.

On the podcast we discuss topics related to the craft of writing, the technical aspects of publishing, creative ways to market your book (even if you’re on a budget), author platforms, branding, and the everyday lifestyle of indie authors.

We go beyond writing, marketing and publishing to discuss real issues that affect indie authors, like burnout, writer’s block, health and balancing a career while taking care of family, working other jobs and going through life changes.

What you do in life counts and Indie Author Lifestyle is all about supporting your author career AND your life.
