Are you tired of earning chump change as writer? Sick of being exploited by content mills or sleazy self publishing companies? Are you tired of feeling like your blogs posts reach an audience of one?

All Indie Writers is a business hub for serious, professional, independent writers who want to make a living freelance writing, blogging, or publishing their own books.
My name is Jennifer Mattern. I'm an experienced freelance writer, professional blogger, and indie author.
