Becca Chopra chose self-publishing rather than bother with sending out query letters to traditional publishers. Find out which vendor she recommends for her marketing materials and learn about a website with free advice for indies.
1. Give me the “elevator pitch” for your book in five to ten sentences.
Chakra Secrets is a memoir and more. Follow me on my path from aspiring actress to yoga teacher and chakra healer. Navigating betrayals and loss, tormented by guilt, I explore kundalini, tantric sex, past-life regression and mind-body tools as I earn my credentials as an energy healer and finally find love and light. You’ll not only learn my personal secrets, but the “instant” healing tool I learned in Hawaii that you can use anytime, anywhere to eliminate pain, stress and clear the path for healing on all levels.
2. Why did you become an indie writer?
I didn’t have the patience to send out query letters to agents. Rather, I decided to self-publish and save myself a lot of time.
3. Have you been traditionally published? Why or why not?
No. I haven’t tried – but I won’t turn down a traditional publisher if they approach me.
