Author Christina Larmer says being an ‘indie author’ means she has complete control over the process of writing and producing a book. Photo supplied

Goonengerry-based writer Christina Larmer has launched her 13th book, Do Not Go Alone.

She describes it as ‘a classic whodunnit, with plenty of dark humour and a heart-wrenching twist. It features a house full of revellers, a bloodied corpse and a cranky spirit who refuses to “choof off” until she works out who killed her and why.’

Larmer says it’s now easier than ever to self-publish your own stories, and make a living from them.

‘Since I turned my back on the traditional path in 2011 and taught myself to DIY, self-publishing has become so much easier and more accessible to all, and I highly recommend it to anyone with a computer, a sense of creativity, and a good story to tell.’

Larmer also teaches self-publishing and creative writing at the Byron Community College, Lismore ACE and the North Coast Community College in Alstonville/Ballina/Yamba.
