Calling All Indie Authors! Indie Authors Book Event!

So I've decided to host an Indie Books event in the month of August and It's going to be called

That's right INDIE AWESOMESAUCE!

So I have a lot of Indie book reviews,interviews and giveaways planned.

Now If  an indie author would like to be a part of this event .PLEASE feel free to email me at 
youngreadersathomeATgmailDOTcom

Unfortunately due to my huge To Be Read pile,I will not be able to review any more indie books but I would love to host an excerpt,interview and/or giveaway of  your book.

Keep in mind that there are limited spots.

Readers if you have any special indie author in mind that you'd like to be a part of this event PLEASE help spread the word to that author about this event.



What Are Indie authors or books?

Eisler defines self-publishing: ‘it means you keep the rights to your book and publish it yourself using distributor/retailers like Amazon, Apple, B&N, Kobo, Smashwords, and Sony, typically retaining 70% of the cover price instead of the 17.5% offered by legacy publishers (for digital editions). This isn’t what “most people” mean when they say self-publishing; it’s what everybody means when they say self-publishing

At its most basic, indie means there is no separate publisher involved. Many indies may have setup their own micro-press, so their books still have a publisher name that is not the author’s name but the publisher is not one of the author services companies. The indie author most likely owns their own ISBNs. The indie pays the bills and is paid by the distributors e.g. Amazon/Smashwords directly. The only middleman is the distributor.

  1. Great event! Indie authors don't always get as much coverage as authors who go the traditional route.

    Thanks for commenting on my review of Pushing the Limits at Imaginary Reads. I look forward to exchanging comments on books and bookish news!

  2. Fabulous idea for a book event!
    I think that it is wonderful that Self/indi published authors are getting more recognition. There are some fantastic indi/self published books out there.
    Over at bigbooklittlebook.com we have also started our own feature to showcase indi authors their work and the industry!
    Keep up the great work!

  4. It is great to have a blog post that is dedicated to indie authors!! I am a huge fan and think that they deserve a real 'pat on the back' for going down the self-publication route, hence they should be reconized as much as other published works.
