Who am I?


My name is Shannon Yarbrough and I live in St. Louis, Missouri.

I self-published my first book, The Other Side of What, in 2003 with Xlibris.

In 2006, I republished a much affordable version of that book with Lulu.

Last year, I published my second book, Stealing Wishes, also with Lulu.  It has been nominated for a Lambda Literary Award this year.

I’ve also had several short stories published in various anthologies with traditional publishers.

I’m also the creator and lead reviewer of The Lulu Book Review.  We read and review books published through lulu.com.

Being a huge advocate and supporter of indie authors and the POD community, I recently published The POD Pocket Guide to Marketing and Selling Your Book on Amazon.  The title says it all.  It’s a quick look at the top ten ways to improve your sales on Amazon.com.

All of my work is also available on the Amazon Kindle.  And I’m currently at work on another novel and on getting my books up on Smashwords.

Best Wishes,

Shannon Yarbrough
