Introduce yourself and make connections on Who’s That Indie Author!

I posted my first Who’s That Indie Author profile nearly four years ago. That’s over 100 authors!  I’m always impressed by the energy and focus exhibited by this hardworking group of writers. Many indie authors work full-time jobs, juggle family and other commitments, and then they write on nights and weekends.

You don’t have to motivate indie authors. Telling their stories is a passion. And their work comes in all forms: short fiction, historical fiction, women’s fiction, science fiction, young adult, mysteries, thrillers, suspense, romance, children’s books, memoirs, poetry—and many other subgenres. It’s an endless supply of creativity!

Most indie authors don’t have enough time to work, write and promote their books on social media. There are lots of ways to get your name out there, but it’s a big job.

Who’s That Indie Author is a great way to introduce yourself to readers. It’s also an opportunity to connect with bloggers and expand your network through connections on WordPress, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn and many other social media and business platforms.

And, it’s free! So why not take advantage of a chance to show your talents? Submit an author profile and see your name travel from blog to blog and tweet to tweet!

The many hats of an indie author

Indie authors have to wear a lot of hats. Many authors have day jobs and family responsibilities. Writing happens in the early mornings or late at night. Then there’s editing, proofreading, formatting, choosing a publisher, a cover, and all the details that go along with these tasks. And next…there’s book promotion, getting reviews, tweeting, Facebooking, blogging, talking about your book nonstop, every day and doing it in a different way each time so that people notice. Online and in person. Here’s how you may react:

Wait…what? You mean, after everything else, now I have to actually market my book? But I’m busy writing my next one. I’m a writer, not a book promoter!

One way to get the word out is to be part of Who’s That Indie Author, a regular feature here at Book Club Mom. Many indie authors have already been introduced and you can be too! Email for a template and instructions.

And in the meantime, meet these talented indie authors who are busy writing their next books!
