About the Writer

Yesenia Vargas
I write books (now working on the second) and blog helpful tips for indie authors, book updates, and other fun stuff. In addition, I'm a copyeditor and proofreader. In my pretty much nonexistent spare time, I read on my Kindle Fire, attempt to stay active, and watch Netflix. I live in Georgia with my daughter and husband.

Let Me Give You The Best Tips For Writers

Can I Give You a Free Book?


  1. Hi Yesenia,

    Nice blog you've got here, and thanks for including me on your list of useful links. Hope to visit again now that I'm following.

  2. Thanks mooderino! I enjoy reading your blog as well. Lots of helpful posts. Sounds like you have lots of writing experience under your belt.

    I'm a newbie still (only one novel written). So this blog is about helping other writers like me through the lessons I'm learning through my own writing as well as sharing useful writing resources that I come across. Hope too see you back!
