Indie Publishing: One Man’s Journey, an interview with Dave Driver

Indie author Dave DriverToday, I’m visiting with author Dave Driver about his experiences with independent publishing.

Dave says, “I should probably start with a caveat. I am much more abstract in my approach to most things I do in life than concrete-sequential. So, what you read below might resonate with abstract thinkers and not so much with concrete-sequential thinkers. I do not believe either approach is superior to the other except as where it best serves each individual. I do believe all approaches can and should be handed off to the leading of the Holy Spirit.”
