About Robert Stanek & Read Indies

Read Indies, Go Indie, Free Today,  AmWriting, AmBlogging, and the rest of our indie initiatives were created by author Robert Stanek as a way to help other authors. Since 2007, Robert donated hundreds of hours of his time and featured thousands of authors in related events and activities. After years of growth, however, managing these initiatives began to occupy as much of Robert Stanek's time as full-time job would have. In 2014, rather than discontinuing the service, Robert brought in a team of authors to help him find ways to keep the service alive. The result of that effort are the family of sites and services you find today.
