The rules are simple: no personal attacks, no in-fighting, no cursing, no antagonizing, no posting anything that would make anyone’s grandmother blush.

What is IndieBoards?
IndieBoards is a gathering place for writers and readers. In the early days of the web, Robert Stanek created Writer’s Gallery, Internet Daily News and Internet Job Center -- destination websites that were places writers and readers could find news, resources, discussion, and more. The goal of IndieBoards is to try to bring back some of the magic of those early sites and to create a community around books and authors.
Hangouts for readers and writers at IndieBoards include:
Readers’ Corner is a destination for readers who wants to discuss books and related subjects. Writers are welcome to join the discussion, though any discussion of one’s own works should be limited to the pinned threads.
Writers’ Corner is a hangout for writers to talk about writing and related subjects. Readers are welcome to join the discussion.
