Garrett Robinson is an independent author and entrepreneur who embodies the spirit of the modern indie writer. Today’s up-and-coming authors don’t make a name for themselves in the hallowed halls of the traditional publishing industry, and they certainly don’t gain fandom by putting out a book every couple of years.
Garrett entered the self-publishing world with a bang, releasing his debut novel to thousands of downloads and numerous favorable reviews. Since then he’s been described as “one of the hardest-working guys out there” (Sean Platt, co-author of The Beam) prompting David W. Wright (co-author of Yesterday’s Gone) to say, “Mark my words, Garrett WILL be a name you know.”
After publishing his first work in December of 2012, Garrett has published more than twenty-five titles in 2013. While he writes mostly in science fiction and fantasy (Touch: Trilogy, The Nightblade Volumes), Garrett has also delved into thrillers (Hit Girls) and has an upcoming literary fiction novel (Rebel Yell).
His bibliography to date includes:
- Touch: Trilogy (bio sci-fi)
- Non Zombie and Non Zombie II (comedic horror)
- Hit Girls (thriller)
- The Ninjabread Man (comedic fairy tale)
- Midrealm (YA fantasy)
- Wyrmspire (YA fantasy)
- Unsaid (short story)
- Nightblade (fantasy)
- Mystic (fantasy)
- Rebel Yell (literary)
Garrett has had to learn every step of self-publishing on his own. He has used his experiences to trailblaze the way for others, creating valuable technical tutorials for indie authors. And (because he’s not a douche) he doesn’t even charge for them! The excellence of his blog tutorials have been hailed by such indie author giants as C.J. Lyons (Hollow Bones, Snake Skin) and Joanna Penn (Pentecost, Exodus).
His three podcasts (The We Make Movies Film Geeks Podcast, A Game of Geeks Podcast, and The Story Telling Podcast) have hundreds of subscribers and regularly feature prominent guests in the worlds of film and independent writing.
