About Valerie Ihsan

Hello Indie Authors (and other Super Fans)!

I'm Valerie Ihsan, author of women's fiction, memoir, and entrepreneurial books for authors.

Since 2010, I've helped authors do their best work by providing editing, teaching, coaching, and mentoring services. But I can do more. I'm starting a podcast to provide free content to authors  who need education, assistance, or inspiration around self-publishing. I love to talk to authors about the indie publishing process and how to make it easier on them. Each episode of the Indie Author Mentor podcast will share insights and industry standards, plus tips and strategies for writing, publishing, marketing and launching books into the world. 

The support of my patrons on Patreon helps make this show and other projects possible. Plus, being a patron of the arts is a totally cool thing to do. Joining my Patreon community also gets you sneak peeks into my creative world, allows you to interact with me directly, and rewards you with exclusive bonus content you can't get anywhere else

You being a patron makes it possible for me to help even more people, too, as well as have the resources to keep writing, publishing, and marketing my own books. Even a $1/month helps me because it's regular income I can count on. And that makes a big difference to me. Why?

Because it's a dream of mine to support my family with my author business, and your funding helps my family get the care and support they need; helps me reach more indie authors like you; and it shows me that you think I'm doing good work in this world--whether from helping authors getting started on their indie publishing journey, or because you like me, my fiction, or my memoirs.

Take a look through the benefits tiers. I'm confident you'll find something you like. Thank you for becoming a patron of the arts, and I can't wait to see you on the show!

I'm so happy you're here. Let's do this together.


$20.53 of $44 per month
When I reach $44/month, I'll be able to add an editing/post-production service to my podcast that will enable a MUCH more professional podcast episode for you.

It'll sound better. So much more than my clumsy attempts at podcast editing. Promise.

Full disclosure for podcast costs: 
Libsyn hosting $15/mo
Allitu app (for the mp3 editing) $29/mo

As of February 2020, my hosting costs are covered with your Patronage. THANK YOU!
