To My Fellow Indie Writers

Hi everyone,

I just started 3 pages on reddit specifically for indie authors to share their works and/or services. If you're not familiar with reddit, it is a huge community in which users vote on posts to help the best quality material reach the maximum number of readers. It has a very large userbase with millions of subscribers, and it is an immense source of information.  Reddit is often the starting point for many viral videos and pictures that you see around the web in other social networking sites.  Reddit was also the starting point for the protest against the SOPA bill (Stop Online Piracy Act) earlier this year which ultimately killed the bill (or at least that version of it).  It's a powerful community when utilized properly, and I think that it will simplify the reader's task of finding good indie books.

The first page I created, titled IndieAuthorConnection, is for authors to share their blogs, interviews, ebook related links, etc.

The second, titled IndieAuthorPromotion is for authors to provide direct links to their books, announce sales, and advertise promotions.

The third page, IndieAuthorServices, is for those who provide services such as cover creation, editing, ebook formatting, and so forth.

Rules can be found in the right-hand sidebars of each page along with links to the other pages.  Make sure you subscribe by clicking the green "Subscribe" button on the upper right-hand corner of
each page! The more links that are submitted, the larger an audience we can reach. If any of you have questions about how reddit works, let me know!
