Indie Authors Still up for adoption for the first annual Adopt an Indie Author

Hi everyone, there are still many fantastic authors still waiting to be adopted for the first annual Adopt an indie author November extravaganza. To request a book please fill in the book request form with up to three books in preference order. You will receive an email once a book has been allocated to you. Click on the book covers to see who has and hasn't been adopted you can also click different genres to find authors. What is Adopt an Indie you maybe asking yourself. It's a collective group of authors from all genre's, skills. What you do when you ask for our books is read. Then you can submitt questions for our interviews, reviews. there will also be chats. What will people get? Readers will be able to talk to published authors and learn about their experiences Authors will be able to find out what really matters to readers and if they really care about the ‘indie/SP/small press’ labels Bloggers can share their take – do they see traditional books as higher quality? Does the publisher even matter? In addition, as part of the ‘Adopt an Indie’ theme, readers will be able to read and review one book from a selection available in order to see first hand the quality that is on offer. In effect, they will ‘adopt’ that indie and be able to ask more detailed questions about their work and get more of an insight into the indie world. What do you have to do? Readers: register your book requests here so I can let you know when you have been allocated a book Bloggers: complete this form and I’ll contact you shortly Authors: complete this form and I’ll contact you within the next couple of weeks (Update: Now closed to signups) What can I expect? Live chat/Q&A sessions Readers interviewing authors Authors sharing their experiences and advice Bloggers sharing their perspective on the changing book market Guest posts Novel excerpts Review copies (ebooks) Okay, what’s the catch? There isn’t one! All I ask is that you: Spread the word far and wide Commit to the month: you’re not expected to be part of every interview, guest post, Q&A etc but I’d love you to follow the ‘Adopt an Indie’ month from start to finish Be open-minded: of course I won’t ban people who don’t like indie/self-publishing/small presses – everyone has the right to an opinion! However, do be willing to listen to everyone’s opinions and share the discussion. Have fun! Everyone has the same thing in common: they love words! Show 'em some love and adopt an Indie Author
