Saturday, October 14, 2017 is INDIE AUTHOR DAY! A time to celebrate independent literary artists. In honor of this, I'm offering $5 OFF of Ready Aim Fire and Basket Case at the CreateSpace eStore. Simply use the code ARG987UE at checkout.
I also wanted to take a moment to talk about how you can help your favorite independent authors today. The publishing world is a rough one, and indie and self publishing is no different. There are a lot of challenges that come with it, and authors can use the help we can get!
1. Buy their books. This one goes without saying, but it's one of the most important things you can do help an author. If you can spare the money, buy multiple copies. You can always give the extra copies to friends as gifts. Just be sure to buy books!
2. Review their books. Drop a review on Amazon, GoodReads, or even your personal blog. Write a review on social media. There's truly nothing that makes an indie author happier than a good review.
3. Talk about their books. Tell your friends about them, post about them on social media, recommend them to book bloggers. Shout from the rooftops! If you're an artist, consider making fan art for their book. (It'll make their heart full!)
4. Engage with the author. Reply to them on Twitter, comment on their Instagram and Facebook posts, share their blog posts, retweet them, send them emails. Talk to them! Let them know that you enjoy their work!
