We had a fun presentation with the members of the South Florida Writers Association on Saturday morning. Among the items we discussed was “What can indie authors do to help other authors?”
One the possibilities was “communicating” with authors to show the that we all have similar issues like what I call “solitary-ness,” writers block, and frustration at the way the publishing system works (or doesn’t work). Some authors have problems trying to understand distribution, marketing, uploads, meta data. And a host of other questions.
These issues are not unique—most indie authors suffer from some, or all, them at one time or another. A few authors have figured it out.
We’re calling on you!. You’re the experts. You have an answer. Now share it with others.
