Indie Support Project Beginning

While writing and editing my book (unpublished), I noticed many of my Twitter-writer friends were struggling with marketing and promoting their self-published books. I had developed on-line friendships with several authors and wanted to support them with more than a ‘like’, ‘retweet’ or post. What’s the ultimate goal of a writer? No, not fame and fortune. It’s to have people read and love your story. With that in mind, I decided to buy signed copies of their books. When I received them, I posted and tweeted the book cover, their signature/inscription and a short blurb about their book. The response from the on-line writing community was overwhelmingly positive, so I decided to buy a few more… Now, two years later and nearly 240 signed books on my shelves, it’s time to move my author support project to the next level. To do this I’m going to need a little help from you; all the authors, writers, and readers out there. If everyone who sees this purchases just one or two cards, we, as a community can help support hundreds of indie authors. ** If this support option is not for you, please help support indie authors, artists and musicians in other ways, such as; buy indie books/art directly from the person on-line; help spread the word by posting links and information about indie authors and artists; write an online review; start an indie author book club; encourage your local library to include books written by indie authors.
