The fairy tale of being an author?

“Fairy tales are more than true. Not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” – Neil Gaiman

Truth be told, I used to think being a full-time author was just a fairy tale.

Historically, very few of us ever ever made a living from their books.
 
You had to write good books, then be chosen by an agent, editor, and publisher.
 
Only then could the reader decide.
 
Today, things are different. 
 
In 2007, Amazon released the 1st Kindle, and suddenly the only gatekeeper was the author.
 
Yes, you still have to write good books, but the only thing standing between your books and your readers is you.
 
If you want to make a living as an author, you can do it.
 
Like anything good, it takes hard work, dedication, and, in this case, plenty of time behind the keyboard and a willingness to put your work in front of readers.
 
Write a good book, launch it, build your readership, then write more books. 
 
To quote one of my indie author inspirations, thriller writer Mark Dawson, “There’s never been a better time to be a writer.”

Hey, I'm Roland Denzel

I created The Indestructible Author in 2015 to help authors just like me be more productive and write more books, all while staying healthy, happy, and sane.

You might know me as a health and nutrition author, coach, and restorative exercise specialist, but the truth is I’ve always been an author first.

I’ve written over ten books, dozens of short stories, and at least one poem, all while raising a family and working a sixty hour a week day job.

I’m not a fast writer, and I make as many typos as I write words. 

If I can do this, so can you.

Need ergonomic help?

As a trained restorative exercise specialist, who’s also an author, I know that “butt in chair” time is both necessary AND our biggest nemesis.

I fought off the onset of carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar neuropathy, and plantar fasciitis, all while managing to keep my butt down long enough to write books, training manuals, blog posts, and work my full-time job behind a keyboard.

If you need some help to get or stay your indestructible self, reach out for a free consultation. There are lots of simple tools and techniques that can keep you writing, productive, and healthy. 

That’s what we all want if we’re serious about our author careers.
