"The Power of Teaming Up With Other Indie Authors" Guest post by Jennifer Malone Wright

**Welcome to the book blog tour of The Vampire Hunter's Daughter by Jennifer Malone Wright, hosted by Parajunkees!**

For my stop, I asked my friend Jennifer about the power of teaming up with other indie authors. She is a tireless advocate for her fellow indies, which helps them, as well as herself. Read what she has to say and then enter to win your own copy of the collection!

It may come as no surprise to most who follow me or spend much time around me on facebook, that I am part of a team of other indie authors. My fellow authors are Willow Cross, KB. Miller and JH Glaze. It's really an unofficial team.

It initially all came together because we all talk, we all discuss marketing and other ways to promote our work. We didn't realize at first that we actually were becoming a team, but we were. So, eventually all this started drifting out into the open and we all just do pretty much everything together now.

There are some awesome things that can come from teaming up with other authors, the first and most important (in my opinion) is that you gain friends. In my case I gained really good awesome friends who I pretty much consider family. I love my team...

Having a team is helpful because they are there for you to bounce ideas off of for marketing and promotion. It's very helpful to every person on the team when it comes to marketing and promo, because everyone helps everyone else out. When one of us has an idea, we almost always include the others in the plan.

Another great thing about having a team is that if you need critique on your writing or blurbs or even graphics and stuff, you have a crit team right there. This also brings up another point. Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses, so it's like combining powers when you have a team of people. One might be good at doing graphic work and another at formatting….so everyone helps each other out.

I am grateful for my friends, who just so happen to be my team. I can't imagine doing what I do without them now. You can actually find us on You Tube or our websites on our Traveling Vlog, that is the title, use that with our names and you will find it. But each week one of us does it on our websites… it's so fun!

Jennifer Malone Wright resides in the beautiful mountains of northern Idaho with her husband and five children. Between the craziness of taking care of her children, whose ages range from fourteen all the way down to six months, and being a homemaker, Jennifer has little time left for herself. The time she does have left, usually leading far into the night, is spent working on freelance work or her beloved fiction.

When she grew up, Jennifer always had her nose in a book. She has been writing stories and poems since grade school. This love of the written word and her strong interest in the paranormal is what has led to her first novel “The Birth of Jaiden.”

In addition to being a mother and homemaker, Jennifer is also a very proud military wife. Moving around the country for the last ten years has made her a bit of a nomad and she finds it difficult to be in one place for too long.

Jennifer is also the author of The Birth of Jaiden, a paranormal novel filled with action, suspense, and even a love story.
