YA Indie Blog Carnival

Welcome to the YA Indie Blog Carnival! :)

We’ve got a bunch of exciting topics lined up for the next few weeks on the who, what’s, where’s and why’s of Indie publishing as well as links to a bunch of fabulous Indie authors that you should definitely check out.  If you own an e-reader of some sort, you are probably at least slightly familiar with the world of Indie publishing, but if not…allow me to introduce you.

Indie authors are those who have chosen to publish their written works independently of a traditional publisher or agent. The authors own their own works, set their own prices, and are responsible for all the management or out-sourcing on the back end such as promotions, networking, web and cover design, editing, formatting and listing their books, tracking their sales, etc. It’s really a revolutionary idea that’s taken off in recent years, especially with the advent of the e-book. Being an author isn’t such an unreachable goal nowadays, because with the right combo of the above, you can make your dreams of being published a reality.

So how does this work?

Every Friday,  each author/blogger will be discussing the following Indie topics on their individual blogs.  You can get to know them, their books and their experiences with Indie publishing.


So what are we going to talk about?

Who are we?



 So check back in every Friday to visit us, ask us questions and explore the world of Indie publishing! :)
