This Artist's Life: Volume One - Dana Sitar

Dana Sitar is a freelance writer/editor/blogger in the San Francisco Bay Area, and author of the series This Aritsts' Life and the upcoming novel The Mailee Stories.

Product description:
Dana Sitar lives her life to chase after the Next Story. From two chaotic months with the surprise visitor from France, to nights of wandering from bar to comedy club to coffee shop in Madison, follow the writer through the late-night antics of her Wisconsin hometown, the last months of a failed marriage, and the realization that she is alone and nothing but an artist.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
Split into short stories, the book is an easy read. Excerpts straight from the writer's journal take the reader deep into the mind of the artist, and the stories she shares reveal the world she sees on the surface. The stories are filled with sex, drugs, and rock and roll -- and the journey of the artist as she learns more and more what those mean.
Q: Why did you go indie?
This is my first published book, and the stories are very personal to me, so I wanted to be involved in the entire process of bringing them out into the world. I love getting into all aspects of writing and publishing -- editing, formatting, cover art, marketing, selling, accounting, etc -- as well as having control over that entire process. My background before writing includes a lot of peer to peer marketing, visibility, planning, and management for organizations, so publishing on my own allows me to apply all of those skills to my writing career now.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
As a creative nonfiction/memoir/autobiographical fiction writer, I admire the work and the lives of Anais Nin, Henry Miller, Hunter S. Thompson, and Charles Bukowski above all.
