#Indie Authors: Where Do You Get Your Industry News?


I came across this interesting blog post at DigitalPubbing.com and I thought it was important to share it here, ‘Where Do You Get Your Industry News/’


This post offers a comprehensive list of great sites to check out by clicking the links and having a look around to see if you may want to subscribe and/or follow their publications for up to date information for self publishers. Many of these sites I’ve been following for the past 4 years and I’ve learned a lot from some of these pioneers in the business.


Many bloggers who are just journeying into the world of self publishing often feel overwhelmed with the amount of information shared around the blogosphere, some left wondering what to do first. Eventually we all find our way through, but it’s helpful to have some of the best advice from some of these wonderful and reliable resources.


Sites I’d highly recommend from there in particular are: The Bookdesigner, The Creative Penn, Chris McMullen, Jane FriedmanThe Passive Voice, and my own added recommendation – The Blog of Anne R. Allen.


Please have a look at the article below from digitalpubbing.com then click on ‘Continue’ to read the rest.


As an indie authorpreneur, it’s important to stay on top of the latest trends, not only in self-publishing, but in the publishing industry as a whole. Here are some sites and blogs that I rea…‘ CONTINUE READING

  1. Thank you for posting this, I have bookmarked the page and will refer to it. I`m nearly there, nearly ready to self publish one of my books, so anything helpful is so good for me right now.


  2. Hi Debby. Yes the entire process of self-publishing can be overwhelming to a beginner. I have published two books but haven’t yet found the right fit for online publishing. I will check out your links and I highly recommend that new authors join some of the writing groups on Linked In where you can ask questions and benefit from some of the more experienced authors.


    1. Thanks Bev. And yes, I didn’t get into social media in this post, but most definitely Linkedin groups have been very helpful to me, especially when I first started publishing. 🙂


    1. Sue! I found you in spam! Grrrrr! Thanks for reminding me to check there. I would never have thought ‘they’ would throw you in spam! So sorry my friend. ❤


      1. Not to worry.. I fished out two perfectly good comments from Lynz only today within my spam box.. I check spam every time I log into comments and trawl the rubbish and empty and you would be surprised how many I have rescued from there. xxx


      1. Yes, one with your name on it and it’s getting bigger every day, but one I relish and have already begun to read, lol! 😀 xo


      2. Lol, you’re so funny! But don’t get overwhelmed. Reading an article a day and letting things sink in is much more productive than trying to read too much and getting overwhelmed. I promise you’ll get there, we all do eventually. ❤ 🙂


  3. Hi Debby,
    I hope things are well. I am holding good thoughts!
    In response to your post. I am STILL not an indie author. My Ebook writer flaked, and I lost three months. But, hey, only the first quarter of the year is gone, so there’s still hope for 2016!
    Take care, wish your spouse well from Janice,
    Thanks for bringing your post to the Blogger’s Pit Stop.
    Janice, Pit Stop Crew


    1. Hi Janice. Thank you so much for your wishes. And I’m sorry to hear about about the ebook reader. Listen, I’ve lost a month of work too due to circumstances beyond my control, but that is life sometimes. We can only do what we can do and move forward. We all have to learn to stop pressuring ourselves. Life is short! ❤
