63 Amazing Authors Who Published Their Book in 2017!

2017 has come and gone but its legacy will live on…….in this instance its the legacy of amazing Authors who braved paper cuts, contracts, graphic disappointments and even a few grammatical errors. An Authors journey has its twist, turns, and hills that are almost as intriguing as the books that they write. Hey, let’s be honest, an Authors life is not all rainbows and cotton candy.

With the ease in which Authors can now be the captain of their own publishing ship, don’t be catfished. There are still many pitfalls that an Author can fall into when saying yes to their passion. Before we get into our list I want to highlight a few of the more common things that Authors endure. (They tend to be universal no matter what genre you are writing)

These are some of the same topics that I highlight on the #SpeakEasy Podcast. (#SpeakEasy Podcast Replays)

  1. Authors are their own worse critic
  2. People often discourage Authors from writing fulltime
  3. There are very few who talk about the business side of being an Author
  4. Authors believe that their family and friends should buy their book (This one hurts)
  5. Deciding on a book cover can turn into a life or death situation
  6. Sleep happens just not usually when it should happen (Many an Author has awakened to keyboard prints on their face)
  7. Time either drags on or is extremely slow (Deadlines sneak up on us sometimes)
  8. You get nervous during the launch and want to unpublish the book
  9. After you publish the book you find grammatical errors
  10. You signed a contract and didn’t read the part about having to buy 250 books to sell and recoup the money you invested


I could go on but I’m sure you get the point. This list bonds Authors together in an odd way. The 63 Authors listed on this blog should be celebrated and acknowledged. If you purchase a book from this list I would love for you to come back and tell us what you thought about the book. Are you a 2017 author?
