Jennifer Oko has won praise for her fiction writing — The New York Times Book Review called her first book Lying Together: My Russian Affair “riveting” and twice named it an Editor’s Choice. Her second book was a Hot Summer Read in USA Today and a Pick of the Month in Marie Claire magazine. She recently published her third book, but this time did it as a self published e-book. Here, her top tips if you’re thinking of doing the same.
