Baking a bigger cake.

2nd-meeting

So for those following my blogs here’s the update for our Indie group

IT WAS BRILLIANT, ABOUT 40+ AUTHORS, REVIEWERS, BLOGGERS, PRINTERS, BOOK BROKERS, AND GRAPHIC DESIGNERS TURNED UP.

We are going to put Indie Authors well and truly on the map.

These are some amazing people in Jozi.

They are Indie Authors. Authors who traditional publishers won’t give an opportunity to. They are hard working and DOING IT FOR THEMSELVES.

Last Friday evening things changed. Last Friday evening they realized they were not on their own. Last Friday evening we became more empowered. LAST FRIDAY EVENING WE DECIDED THE CAKE IS TOO SMALL AND WE WANT TO BAKE A BIGGER CAKE. if we support each other then our WILL cake grow.

It is small minded to think you don’t need to share. There are millions of readers out there, we just need to reach them. We need to share our resources, editors, graphic designers, web builders, reviewers, bloggers. The more TALK we can create the more people will listen to us.

Let’s talk to book clubs, let’s talk to schools, lets talk to libraries and let them know who we are. Indie Authors are a force to be reckoned with. WE WRITE GOOD BOOKS, we just need readers to know that and stop being blindfolded by the publishers who want to keep the whole cake for themselves. What are they doing to bake a bigger cake?

Before last Friday Evening I knew 1100 peeps on Facebook. After last Friday evening my cake grew, by sharing I will reach all of their friends too and they mine and everyone else’s. Last Friday evening we started to bake a bigger cake.

Next month we can bake an even bigger one with your help. So if you are an author, blogger, reviewer, printers, graphic designer, web builder, promoter, contact me and come along to our next meeting OR simply share this blog

READERS YOU ARE OUR CAKE. COME MEET SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE INDIES AT SKOOBS THEATRE OF BOOKS, BUY A BOOK AND GET IT SIGNED THERE AND THEN. WE WOULD LOVE TO MEET YOU
