In 2014, I self-published my first novel. I had no clue how much encouragement I would find, not only from family members, friends, and readers, but from other writers and indie supporters. The indie community sweeps multiple groups, including authors, reviewers, book bloggers, online writing clubs, local writing clubs, blog tour organizers, newsletter promo sites, awards competitions, convention coordinators, bookstores, libraries, and anyone willing to accept or read a book that hasn’t been through the conventional, traditional publishing process. On top of that are the editors, proofreaders, formatting folks, cover artists, and audio narrators who help indie books look and sound their best.
I’ve met so many people who’ve cheered me on and inspired my continued efforts at fiction writing that I’m not sure I could list all the individual names and entities without the risk of leaving someone out. So I’ll simply say this: Today is the third annual Indie Pride Day, and I’m grateful for your support. Cheers and best wishes on this wonderful day.
Stop by the Facebook party to meet fabulous indie authors and learn more about their books.
