One author, Raen Smith, talked to me and other authors about her journey so far with self-publishing. Like many indie authors, she is struggling to find her audience/readers. We know they're out there, it's just not always easy to stand out in the crowd. I have yet to read Raen's books, but House of Fire and House of Steel are both in my TBR pile and I plan to get to them soon!
Author Raen Smith loves creating dark and twisted tales with a sprinkling of happily ever after. When she isn't writing novels, she spends her time wrangling two small sons and teaching at a technical college. She lives in a small corner of Wisconsin with her husband and two sons.
From author Raen Smith comes a new bone-chilling suspense series. House of Steel introduces young art professor Delaney Jones, who after sleeping with her student, is entangled in a lethal vendetta. She must follow the instructions of a mysterious messenger to save the student and the lives of the ones she loves.

House of Fire is the page-turning second novel where Delaney uncovers the truth about her family and her connection to a criminal underworld so shocking she fears to unravel it.

I am hoping Raen finds her readers sooner rather than later. Her third book in the series is due to be released November, 2013.
