Hello again. This is my third post about how to get started with self publishing. If you haven't read the first two, stop what you're doing, and go back to my website lynnmccainauthor.com and check them out. Welcome back! Ok, so we have discussed social media and getting a website. Now, it's time to talk about what to do next. Step 3-- Get a blog. I know, I know it's scary, but you have to do it. To start out, decide who your target audience is. Who are your books written fo
A few years ago, I had a dream that I just couldn't shake. Every time I closed my eyes, I saw it. I could hear the desperate screams coming from a man racing through the woods, and the blonde haired girl's laughter echoed in my ears. Finally, I could take it no more, so I sat down in the floor of our home-school room and began to type away. It felt amazing to just get it out of my head. Honestly, at first, that is all I was trying to do. Writing a book was not even on my rada
Hello again! As promised in my previous post, I will begin to tell you all of my self-publishing secrets. Well, they really aren't secrets, but when I first started my journey they might as well have been in a foreign language. As I mentioned before, writing the book is the easy part. But what do you do after you type that last word? (Other than fall on your face and cry, dance , jump for joy, ect..) That is when the you know what hits the fan. As a general rule most writers

Whether you are team Henry or team Calev, you won't want to miss me, YA Fantasy author, Lynn McCain, get up close and personal with Henry, one of the leading male characters in my new series, Beyond the gates.

I took the liberty to interview the main character in my new book series, Beyond the Gates. Without giving away too much of the story, you get an intimate look into the mind of Lily. This was such a great way to go behind the scenes. I hope you enjoy. If you have any questions you would like to ask her yourself, just send them our way, and we will do our best to get the answers back to you. #LynnMcCain #YAAuthor #FantasyWriting #NeitherLightNorDark #HowtodevelopCharacters #Ch
I have never been more honored than to create not only another world but to fill that world with amazing characters. In my new book, Neither Light nor Dark, you will get to experience a taste of what is going on inside my head on a regular basis. I have grown to love (most) of the characters as if they were my own friends and family. I'd like to take a minute to introduce you to a few of my favorites.
First of all, there is Lily Channon. When the books starts she is only th
