In Praise of indieBRAG – Denise Barnes


Thank you so much for your thrilling email that I have achieved the second B.R.A.G award in The Voyagers trilogy, Kitty’s Story. You really made my day.

Just  to mention that when Kitty’s Story was in manuscript form, I offered it to HarperCollins. They loved it, but because I’d self-published Annie’s Story (which achieved the B.R.A.G award) and Juliet’s Story (which apparently only missed the award by a whisker), HarperCollins decided I should continue to self-publish Kitty’s Story. You can imagine my disappointment. But in the next breath they asked if I would write a series for them set in WW2, and the first one, An Orphan in the Snow, under the name Molly Green, came out on 30th November. They’ve chosen it as one of their leading titles for their Autumn/Winter brochure. I’m still pinching myself!

I just thought you might like to hear of a success story from a previously self-published author.
