WARRIOR MINE is successfully launched into the world. I’m close to 30k words into the next book.
But right now, all I can think about is that Facebook has locked me out of my author account, with no indication when (or IF) it will be reinstated.
When I logged on yesterday, citing ‘security concerns’, they requested that I submit a photo, which I did. Now, I’m still waiting. I can’t communicate with my readers or my author colleagues. I can’t post to my author page. I can’t chat with my street team or my book club. I can’t even use Messenger.
Somewhere out there, a ‘bad actor’ with nefarious intent regarding the 2018 US mid-term election is laughing his ass off.
July 1, 2015 is Indie Pride Day. Social media is going to be flooded with photos of proud independent authors holding their books.
If you’ve never ventured out of the literary world of big name publishers, take the opportunity to explore all the great books that are available from self-published authors.
Remember when iTunes first came out and suddenly you found bands you loved and had never heard of before. Huge traditional publishers have long determined the literature that is available to the public. With the advent of self-publishing like Kindle Direct Press, there’s a never-ending selection of possibilities. Self-published ebooks are infinitely more affordable than establishment books. Hell, with Kindle Unlimited you can read books for free.
And, if you’re thinking about investigating the books offered by Indie Authors, might I suggest Luke & Bella: Two Streets Over by Pandora Spocks. It’s a contemporary spicy romantic novel and it’s available on Amazon for a mere $2.99, FREE with Kindle Unlimited.
