Did you know that the day following Black Friday is Small Business Saturday? It’s a day to support the local economy by shopping at small, independently owned businesses. Instead of heading to the mall in search of holiday gifts, maybe hit up a small funky boutique for something cool and unique.
And, as long as we’re talking about it, let me just point out the fact that Indie Authors are small business owners. We’re one-man-bands, so to speak, writing, editing, and marketing our own product. Buying your next read from an Indie Author directly supports that writer’s work rather than padding the bottom line of a big box publishing house.
So where do you start in your search for your new favorite Indie Author? Search your go-to genre on Amazon or iBooks. Read the reviews. We’re all over social media, too. Ask people what they’re reading–you’ll probably get some great recommendations.
Remember to #ShopSmall this Saturday!
