Summer of Indie Celebrations Started April 27 -- Here's the Original PostI'm Robert Stanek and I’m giving a shout out to let you know "Summer of Indie" is on its way. All indies are welcome. The event is being hosted @ my Go Indie Facebookgroup and here @ my Read Indies blog.
"Summer of Indie" is free. To participate, read this. The ramp up to "Summer of Indie" kicked off in grand style on April 27 with more than 35 indie authors turning out for the event.
The first question I asked the group was: Why did you Go Indie? This got many terrific responses.
Cathy Brockman said, she loved their song "Blinded by The Light." I agree, great song.
The second question I asked the group was: What's the best advice you have for aspiring writers, particularly those who are thinking about Going Indie?
Ice Cream Break
Chocolate and French vanilla were big hits—and the best thing about virtual ice cream is it’s fat free, sin free, and FREE free. Dude’s gotta budget this big event so I can make the mortgage. :-D
The last question I asked was a big one: Have you signed up for KDP Select? If so, share your thoughts.
Thanks for dropping in! Hope you'll spread the word about Read Indies and the indie authors featured here.
