This little book is not an instruction manual.
On the cover it reads:
“If you want someone to hold your hand through the process of self-publication, this little book is not for you.”

This informative romp is an introduction to the continually evolving world of independent publishing. It illustrates the path the new indie author will likely travel. While this guide is not a step-by-step, holding-your-hand, instruction-packed text book, it takes the reader along the path that leads to creating a book in print or eBook format. It explains what the new author can expect on the way and details the first-hand experiences that lie ahead. It is written in everyday language with a touch of bathos and humor. It avoids the heavy-handed, wearisome textbook approach. "A Guide For The Indie Author" is a straightforward and concise mini-manual for the fresh, independent author. It describes the process of self-publication from conception, through document creation and book formatting to the distribution of the final product. A light-hearted discussion covers various writing genres, character development, theme creation, writing styles and the inclusion of dialogue. Resources available for the new author are explained, where to look for them and what to do with them after they are found. It is an informative overview of the brave new world of indie publishing that was virtually unknown and impassable a generation ago. We are reminded to enjoy the experience and always make a back-up copy. That, in and of itself, makes sense.
Read information about the authorStay Tuned!
Ed's next novel Phryné isn’t French will introduce new characters, locations and themes.
Currently, the story is in the typewriter of his mind ... not a big old black Underwood or a dusty, old 1970's IBM Selectric word processor, but a thought processor ... a word wrapper and sentence scrambler ... a metaphor mixer and paragraph parser ... something like that.
Edward Hackemer lived in Western New York for 55 years before retiring from government service and moving to North Georgia; roughly halfway between Atlanta & North Carolina.
His employment history runs from paperboy, dishwasher, warehouseman and over-the-road truck driver. His life experience includes military, government and public service and nearly countless trans-Atlantic trips. Ed spent several years overseas, is a veteran of the US Army, and is happily married. He met his wife in Europe, and upon relocation to the United States she became a proud, naturalized American citizen.
(What a nice word naturalized is! Although it sounds organic and environmentally friendly, his wife isn't green. She's a blonde.)
He is currently enjoying retirement with his natural wife, son, daughter (in-law), and two (grand) daughters.
During the writing of 'Sangria Sunsets', 'The Flying Phaeton', 'Dollar To Doughnut', 'A Bridge To Cross', 'The Katydid Effect' and 'In A Cream Packard' Ed not only drew from life experience and personal memories, but steeped himself in period music and culture: 1927 through 1967 popular music (jazz, blues, folk, dixieland and rock and roll), movies (silent & talkies!), television, as well as extensive research into history, contemporary mores, language, habits, lifestyle, retail products, services and prices.
Music and popular culture are the heartbeats of life. The stories are historically honest to the timeline of each of the Throckmorton family novels, with passing reference to relevant news and sports. Factoids, locations, institutions and trivia within the books were carefully verified and dateline authenticated.
To fill an informational void created by the Packard and Katydid stories, in January 2014 Edward finished the prequel to them, A Bridge To Cross, which is set during the Roaring Twenties. Next came Dollar To Doughnut and The Flying Phaeton. Sangria Sunsets became available in May of 2017.
Although the Throckmorton books are a series, each one can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story. The author hopes that readers will enjoy the stories as much as he enjoyed writing them.
Life is grand.
Wishing you all good reads ....
