There’s a new kid in town and it’s working to try and bring Independents together. I don’t know if it will help us any but I do know we need something. We’re fighting an uphill battle. I’ve been doing a lot of research into what is going on with distributors, independents, and the market for the past couple of weeks and it ain’t looking too good for us.
The distributors are going to highlight the works of the already established authors so even if your work is better no one is going to find it unless they are looking for you specifically and if people don’t know you they won’t be looking for you. If they haven’t read something of yours and they do happen to come across one of your books in their search the odds are extremely high they are just going to keep scrolling past you.
Because of this you’ve got a lot of people out there claiming they can help you if you hand them a lot of money but once they have the money you are left holding the bag. Just so you know if you don’t already, that bag is empty. Don’t believe me. Look inside. Do you see any cash in there? I didn’t think so.
Please if you’re an independent author, or an independent of any type, video, audio, or whatever. Check this site out. They’re not asking for anything from you except that you help them get the word out by sharing what you’ve been through with your creative work. You can email them at,
Will it help you, probably not but it certainly isn’t going to hurt you. What you share could help someone else and who knows what someone else shares may help you.
She was definitely a few pieces shy of a complete Erector Set.
"Nice equipment." said Alison.
"Don't I know it."
Would someone please make him stop excreting humanly body fluids?
