Indie Anna Jones (Mini-Blog Essay) 4/29/12
Thank you Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Sean Connery, and George Lucas, etc. etc. Okay now that that's out of the way check out this mini-blog essay. Books by indie authors are on the rise. With the help of Amazon.com, the Kindle, and independent bookstores such as Back to the Books and others like it, no longer are books published by small independent presses looked down upon by traditional big time publishers. Instead they are waking up and taking notice as are the mainstream media and the public as well. Authors and small presses can create websites, blogs, and so much more with just a click of a button. Indie authors now have more control of their work and not to mention their own success thanks to the internet. Many first time authors are choosing to self-publish than ever before in recent history. Are you one of them? Today show your support by buying a book from your local indie author or visit an independent bookstore the next time you go out shopping. Or why not surf the web for online independent book stores. A good place to start would be Back to the Books. Some of their best selling books include "Allon" by Shawn Lamb, "Dereliction of Duty" by Jon Renaud, "If I Could Be a Zebra" by Zarle Williams, and "Poems That Might Or Might Not Change Your Life" by Charlie Clouse, plus many more.
