This month, I’m excited to introduce Tammi Labrecque, indie author, editor, and publisher, who I know through the online Smarter Artist community, and interviewed about her Indie Pub Intensive courses. Tammi lives in Bangor, Maine with two kids, three cats, and dozens of fictional characters that keep her awake nights. When she’s not helping other indie authors achieve their dreams, she writes across several genres, including romance, fantasy, urban fantasy, mystery, and horror.
Indie Pub Intensive
What does Indie Pub Intensive offer?
Indie Pub Intensive is a selection of small-class (10 people per class) intensive courses that cover general topics—like mailing lists, launch strategies, ad basics—in a narrower, more focused way than most other courses.
How are the Indie Pub Intensive courses different from everything else out there? What do they add?
There are a lot of ways that IPI is different from other educational and coaching offerings in the indie publishing space.
- First, each class is small and extremely focused. 10-12 students talking about one narrow topic for just four weeks at a time.
- Second, it is not a series of pre-recorded videos that several hundred or thousand people are watching at their own pace; it’s a real-time class with other indie authors in a virtual classroom, plus individual video calls with the instructor.
- And third, I’m pretty sure no one else is doing the one-on-one coaching component with any course; most instructors are casting such a wide net that it’s simply not possible for them to interact with each student personally.
