As an independent author, in a world where there are literally billions of books, finding your voice and visibility can be challenging.
But, what if independent authors joined forces, created one voice and united in their efforts to build credibility, visibility and readership. This was a question posed on one of the author forums I’ve joined, and from there the ball got rolling.
Rather than relying on individual efforts to get visibility for our respective books through social media platforms, we have proposed that we form a membership, focused on showcasing our books in a way that presents us as professional group of authors. We want to leverage each other, create hype, interest and discussion about our work, in a way that will build a good readership following.
Will this work? Time will only tell… but surely there is more power in unity and allegiance.
Therefore, we are introducing Indies United and any author is welcome to apply to become a member. There will be a small monthly financial commitment, which will be used to leverage promotions in a professional format. We will also be asking for input and a commitment from members to share in the efforts to cross promote the groups efforts, and the group owners will commit to ensuring that there is are regular promotional activities on behalf of all authors.
If you are an author and you are interested in finding out more, please complete the form in the link below and someone from the team will get back to you shortly.
Over time, we aim to make Indies United a major name in book publishing, and we hope to build attendance at book fairs and other literary events.
